I am planning to live in the Philippines next year. I am not a gardener but want to learn. In the Philippines there is 12 hrs. sun and dark each day all year round. It is also very hot - 27 C or higher all year. I want to learn to grow potatoes in a container/bag or in straw. Is it possible to grow potatoes in a very hot climate? And in straw? I will be living close to the sea. Can I use sea weed to fertilize? I hope you can help me to get started.
