I have just purchased some seed potatoes (duke of York's)
but there are no instructions with them, i am using flexi tubs as my garden is not yet suitable for planting, can anyone give me some advise, Please note i am very new to gardening so all help will be gratefully recieved.

Thank you



You will need drainage holes in your flexi tubs and then put in 4 inches of compost/soil add another four inches of the mixture and then allow the potatoes to grow till they reach about 8" high and cover them up with more soil/compost. I posted a potato blog recently you might like to look at that.
