How to Plant Potatoes in Containers
1. Add 6 inches of potting mix to the bottom of each growing container, mix in fertilizer, and place your seed potatoes about 6-inches (15 cm) apart.
2. Cover the seeds with 6-inches (15 cm) of soil and water well.
3. Once the plants reach about 6-inches (15 cm) tall, add more soil to the container. Repeat the process every 2-weeks or so until the container is full.
You can begin harvesting new potatoes as needed for meals after the plants bloom.
Potatoes are finished growing when their foliage begins to turn yellow. Stop watering at this point and allow the foliage to die. Dump out the container and dig through the soil for the potatoes.
