Container Potato Plants
Q.

When to add soil

Zone I think zone 7, I'm in north central texas | xdementedlovex added on June 24, 2015 | Answered

This year is my first year to grow potatoes in a container (bucket to be precise) and although they are nice and green and sprouting, they are growing at clearly different rates. For instance, one is 8 1/2 inches long, another is about 6 inches long, and the last one is only a mere inch! My concern is that when it is time to add more soil I'll be covering up the bitty one. What should I do?
