2nd year of growing veg in raised beds and loving it! Could I have a bit of very simple advice? I'm trying to grow potatoes in big pots on a patio. I bought seed potatoes late from Homebase a couple of weeks ago and they had already sprouted, the longest of which were about 10 inches long! I read that they can still do fine if you plant them like this. I carefully did this a couple of weeks ago without breaking the shoots so that the tips of the shoots were just under the surface of the soil. They are now breaking through with small green leaves. It is this stage that I don't fully understand. Do I continue to pile earth on top of the developing leaves to encourage stronger growth or do I wait until they are above soil level and pile the soil up beneath the leaves to cover the shoots/stems themselves?
Thanks and sorry this is a rather basic query for most.
