Potatoes - raised bed or not ?

Bristol, United Kingdom Gb

Have recently read on a website that you should not plant potatoes on a raised bed - is this right ? would love to know anybody elses experiences



Hi Libby,
There is no reason why you should not grow potatoes in your raised bed. You will need more soil later to earth them up.

this year Im growing my potatoes in newspaper recycling bags - last year I grew them in a raised bed and as Doctor Bob said kept topping them up with soil as they grew I also kept black polythene around them and had a fab. crop that was very easy to harvest.
