I noticed some rogue Orla new potatoes plants growing in my veg plot. I had obviously not dug them all up last year. So I thought: "Hmm .... "
Then I carefully dug six of the plants complete with their seed potatoes and decided to be resourceful and planted them in the homemade compost filled polystyrene packaging that my son's welder came in. It's been a great planters for the last few years.
Six instant new potatoes plants growing in the polytunnel.
Another one of my tight wad gardening ideas. Have you ever transplanted potatoes from outside into your polytunnel or greenhouse?
Hopefully these will be ready within less than twelve weeks to harvest and eat. Usually they are ready when it's Scorchio and you hear your self saying: " It's too hot for potatoes" and "Is it hot or is it me?"
