Full sun, well drained, fertile soil.
Dig holes 10-15cm deep, and plant seeds (small potatoes) with 'eyes' or 'sprouts' (these are potatoes that have either small dots with sprouts growing, or stems growing from the 'eyes).
Backfill holes with soil and water in well.
Potatoes can be grown in a large pot or even a bucket or bathtub.
Punch or drill a few holes in the bottom for drainage.
Follow similar steps as in the garden.
i.e Half fill the container with potting mix, and place the seed potatoes on top 10-15 cm apart.
Cover with soil.
When shoots begin to show, cover leaves completely with more potting mix.
This prevents the potatoes from turning green.
Follow seed-> seedling -> harvest guide.
Harvest once the plants have flowered and died down.
You can also take small potatoes before then by hand digging beneath the plant and carefully extracting.
Leave potatoes long enough so that their when tubers create shoots, when this happens, cut the potato up so that each section has one tuber, and divide them up for planting.
