How to Plant Potatoes in buckets

Fantastic video from The Young Grower showing how to plant potatoes in buckets and pots. When we are further into spring, chitting is not so important and so you can plant with less/no chitting. Remember geography plays a huge part in planting and so don’t think you are behind – potatoes can be planted all through April and into May. Follow this inspirational young grower for lots of tips on all aspects of growing ….and pics of his chooks! He is so right to grow varieties that you can’t easily buy in shops.

Try growing some of the varieties that The Young Grower loves – Highland Burgundy Red, Red Emmalie, Salad Blue and Violetta

    Thank you for this. Do you need to have drainage holes in bottom of bucket?

      Hi Pam,
      we would advise drainage holes and it is best to do this before filling the buckets. Potatoes like to be well watered, but not waterlogged and so need drainage.
