Early Potatos in Containers.
« on: January 17, 2012, 04:54 »

Both Rocket and Swift usually crop well in containers, and from an indoor mid feb planting, will give you a cope by mid May whihc is worth having

( I do this every year with children)

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

If you can offer some protection such as a greenhouse or conservatory you can plant mid Feb. and get a crop by the end of April/early May. I did this last year with Lady Christl.
