Grow Potatoes Anywhere With This Special Container

As with any vegetable, there are recommended methods of planting that ensure a healthy and bountiful harvest. Potatoes are no exception, and we have created a special potato-growing container that even a novice gardener could use with ease.

The GeoPot Potato Bag will allow you to plant a sizable crop anywhere – even your front porch.

Here’s how:

  • Instead of pulling weeds and digging trenches, start out by filling the bottom of the Potato Bag with soil, adding the seed potatoes, and then covering the tops with another few inches of soil.

  • Place the bag in a sunny location and keep the potatoes watered. Any excess water will drain off, and roots will benefit from the oxygen the fabric pot allows in.

  • When the sprouts get to be about 8 inches in height, add about 4 more inches of soil. Keep adding soil as the sprouts grow, and continue to water them daily. That’s about it.

  • When the foliage starts to die and wither back, it’s almost time to harvest your potatoes. This is where the GeoPot Potato Bag really shines. Wait about one or two more weeks, then open the velcro panel. You’ll be able to see plump potatoes ready for you to reach out and grab.

Pro tip: freshly harvested potatoes taste best. If you want the tender, new potato taste, you can harvest a couple of spuds up to two weeks early, wash, prepare, and eat. Let your storage potatoes sit for two weeks so the skin has time to thicken up. When you pull them out, wipe the excess dirt off but don’t wash them. Place your potatoes in a paper bag and store them in a cool, dry area. Don’t store them in the refrigerator, as the cold will cause sugar buildup which can affect the taste as well as causing them to turn brown during frying.
