How To Grow
Potatoes grow in a wide range of soils, the ideal being sandy with a high humus content. They require nitrogen so add manure and garden compost to the soil before planting. New shoots will appear in 2-3 weeks and require mounding to encourage formation of the new tubers, and to ensure they are not exposed to the sun. Lift potatoes when vines begin to die. Leave freshly dug tubers in the sun for a day to prevent bruising, then store in dark and cool conditions.
