How Much Watering to Grow Potatoes

Anonymous added on June 3, 2011 | Answered

I have planted my first garden and am thinking about growing potatoes, but I don't know how much to water them if I do plant. I live in South Carolina and it's very hot here. I have mostly sand for soil. However, I have bought soil and mixed it in. Please let me know how much to water and any other tips you may have.

For the maximum crop, keep your potato vines well watered throughout the summer, but especially during the period when they are in flower, and immediately thereafter. Keep soil moist but not soggy. Water early in the day so that the foliage has time to dry completely before evening. When foliage turns yellow and dies back, discontinue watering.
