Q.Limit Of Cover Of Foliage For Potatoes In Bags

Zone Cape Town | Anonymous added on June 8, 2021 | Answered

I am wanting to grow potatoes in sacks and I read that the foliage must be covered as it grows. Should all the foliage be covered completely each time or must some leaves be left visible at all times? Thank you Victor
