Growing potatoes is actually not that easy. We offer you a way in your garden with the help of several means.
Potatoes are one of the easiest foods to grow on your own. It doesn't require much attention, and with this handy trick, you can grow a lot of potatoes at once.
To get started, you need the following:
- Wire fencing 4 feet high x 8 feet wide
- Compost and soil
- Seed potatoes
First, you need to install the pillars in a square shape. Make sure they are 18 inches apart. This will be the base of the potato tower.
Then take the wire and wrap it around the post like a fence.
Then, trim it so that the horizontal legs are wrapped around the vertical legs you created when you started fencing. Use pliers to bring the ends together.
Add hay, compost, and soil to create an environment in which the potatoes can grow.
Take two kilograms of seed potatoes.
Place potatoes in soil and compost. Make sure the green buds are facing out towards the hay. Then cover the potatoes with a few inches of soil and add another row of potatoes. Do this until the potatoes run out. At the top of the tower, plant the tubers in the middle and make sure the potatoes grow upward. Water regularly.
Your potato tower will grow slowly after the plants have bloomed.
Harvesting potatoes is fairly easy. Pull the hay out of the compost and you will see potatoes. Make sure you don't water the tower before harvesting … otherwise you'll be digging in the mud!
This potato tower produces copious quantities of potatoes. You will have a sufficient amount that will last for a long time!
