This is a plastic barrel which is hexagonal shaped which has a sliding door compartment so you can collect your potatoes easier from the base of the container once they have grown. It does this by opening up a little area in the base big enough to allow you to get to the potatoes that are laid bare and you just pick off what you want until the five seed potates you planted run out of new potatoe shoots. Simple easy to use and cheap at £39.99 which is now £29.99 in some garden shops.
Simple as one two three.
Just fill container with soil medium or compost and soil mixture with some fertilizer for the growth process. Plant up to five seed potates in as deep as four inches down and wait for them to grow watering on occasion to keep moist. When the potatoes are ready just slide the movable door out of the way and select the amount of potatoes you require and close back up leaving the rest to carry on growing until you finally runout of potatoes. You can go for a second crop once they are all gone by re fertilising and planting more. You can get up to two or three crops if you start early enough. Nice for a small garden or somewhere with poor soil or pest problems as this stops all of that type of thing. And you can for good measure spray your tatties when growing if you really wanted too.
We had a small garden and this was a useful way of getting our veggies to grow.
A brilliant design which allows you to grow potatoes in even the smallest garden or patio. The lift up sides mean that potatoes can be harvested a few at a time. 60cm (tall) x 43cm (wide).
