Container Potato Plants
Q.

I overdid my container potatoes!

Zone Cumberland, MD | jfairall added on June 28, 2014 | Answered

I planted potatoes in large planting pots (but not 5-gallon containers) and they are going crazy - at least the leaves and stems are. I keep adding a lightweight planting mixture but I am afraid they are totally overcrowded. Is there any help? I did grow potatoes before in northern Minnesota in big containers and they were fine, but the season up there is short and the temps are much cooler.

    I think you should just keep on as you have bee, watering and all, and see what happens. Gardening is a never-ending learning experience. This article might have something useful in it for you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/potato/container-potatoes.htm
