I have searched all around here and the Internet and I cannot find the answers.
In the diagram below it shows the space I have for potatoes, but how far away from the marigolds and beans and peppers can I plant the potatoes? Since they are underground, can they be closer to these other plants or do these other plants have deep roots? I am cutting the seed potatoes up now and I don't know how many to cut.
Also in the diagram below it has the space available for potatoes, but within that small space, what is the minimum I can plant the potatoes if I want large ones? These will all be Russet potatoes.
Also, if one cut up seed has more than one eye growing already but they are close together, should I cut them apart or leave the two? Will they both grow into plants and grow potatoes since they are on the same seed or is it better to separate them into two seeds?
Also, if the eyes that are already growing are already 6-8 inches long should I bury them deeper or cut them or let them stick out of the ground?
Please please help! Thank you!
