Iv planted my potatoes in 125l sacks and filled them as required. however iv now filled them to the top, but the plants just keep growing, and have lost there support? 1 of the sacks has just started fowering? dose anyone have any advice... im a 1st timer but did follow advice from the internet....

On plant white potatoes, and red roosters



Hi Guest growing in sacks is not nearly as easy as growing in the ground. In addition there seems to be a lot of top growth on all the potatoes this year. Given that your are in a sack and can't be earthed up any more you can either stake the foliage or simply let it flop. Remember that the potatoes will require a lot of water. If the are early varieties you can harvest 12 - 13 weeks after planting - main crop will need around 17 weeks.
