Hi all

Me and my partner live in a flat with a veranda, we decided to do some Vegetable Growing in pots and have done really well, however we decided at the last minute and with one 75ltr bag of compost left to throw in 4 1/2 potatoes, they are now doing well, although we have plated them in the compost bag its flat not upright.

What we want to know is, the holes we formed for putting the potatoes in now look too small, we didn't add any drainage holes either doh.

Can we enlarge the holes without damaging the potatoes.

any help or advice would be great

Also planted beetroot, which are growing great although they do need thinning out now, can we transplant the weakest seedlings into other pots, so as not to waste them ???




Too late really to put drainage holes in the grow bag with the potatoes in, not sure how well they will do it is usual to stand the bag on end if you are growing potatoes. It wont be possible to save the beetroot that you think out but you can eat the leaves in a salad or lightly steamed

Wel done you on growing some veggies!
