I would like to try to grow some potatoes in containers this winter. Can anyone who already does this give me any hints as to what size/depth containers they use. Any other tips are appreciated, as well.
Yes, I was thinking of building a planter in the basement. I have several 4' shop lights that I could place over them on a timer. Thanks for the link, that gave me some good info.rainbowgardener wrote:crobi, remember the potato box nes was talking about was used for growing potatoes outdoors. When you say you want to grow potatoes in containers this winter, I presume you mean indoors. Apparently it can be done,
but light is going to be the issue. Potato plants like full sun and that is difficult to duplicate indoors. You are going to need lots of light, directly over and close to the plants, which you can leave on like 16 hrs a day.
