Pomme de terre en Tour Verticale - Potato Towers Vertical Garden
I've wanted to grow potatoes in a tower for some time now. It saves space by getting the crop to grow up rather than sprawling out in the ground.
Here's how it works: The plant grows and its stem lengthens, as do the underground stolons from which the tubers grow. Give the stem more height to grow and it will, increasing the space for stolons and thus tubers.
At the Mason Street City Farm we have tried 2 different techniques:
1) Build it all at once
-take your materials to make your tower and make a tower! You can use any sort of mesh, bamboo blinds, garbage cans, you just want it to be able to hold the weight of the potatoes while they grow. Choose level ground and prepare your medium. We chose a 50/50 mix: Leaf mulch and finished compost.
This first technique requires more potato seed and that you have all of your growing medium ready at once. Put a 4-6" layer of your mix at the bottom of the potato tower and place a ring of 5-6 potato seed, add another 4-6" layer of potato seed. Continue this layer process until the tower if full.
2) One layer of potato seed that you just continue to add layer of leaf mulch and potato seed to as the potato plant grows. Less potato seed and prep is needed and I have a feeling that it will produce more potato seeds.
Enormous harvest of Container Grown Potatoes
I decided to harvest the remaining 7 containers of potatoes this evening.
These are the Sarpo Miras grown in smaller 30 litre pots.
The result was the biggest crop I've ever had of about 75 pounds from the 7 pots with some of the potatoes being enormous.
The first one being almost 13.5 pounds from just a single pot.
So I will continue to grow my spuds this way and grow more of this variety.

Potato Towers: The Results Are In!
In this video I'm harvesting the potato towers and discussing the results of my first experiment with growing potatoes in stacked up car tires.
These potatoes are now in my winter supply, to see me through the first few months of the Year of Food!
NB: Sorry guys, the volume on the later discussion section is a bit low. Sorry about this, it sounded OK in editing. I'll be checking out my mic setup fr the next vid!
Plant Potatoes in Bags of Burlap Above Ground from Home Grown Fun
Come visit me on Facebook for more potato growing updates and garden experiments!
Recycled coffee sacks provide a natural grow bag for planting potatoes above ground at home, on your balcony, patio or in the backyard. They give the potatoes awesome air flow and drainage. They last one season and can be composted. See how we plant seed potatoes in burlap almost all year round in San Diego. At Home Grown Fun, we love to inspire everyday folks to grow their own food.

Allotment Dairy : Growing potatoes in containers,how to boost your yield to get a bumper crop
A quick video of how I go about planting potatoes in containers and then taking up a little soil space on the bed the roots are allowed to grow through the holes into the soil beneath.
This is how I did it last year and had some amazing crops of 11 pounds of spuds from just 2 seed potatoes.
I use 30 litre pots and add about 4oz of fertilizer to the bottom quarter such as Blood Fish & Bone or whatever your fert of choice is.
The amount of room each pot takes up is minimal,around 2square feet so the yield per sq ft is remarkable,way more than planting straight into the soil.
The reason seems to be that not only do the plants get all the nutrients from the compost,but also they get extra nutrients and moisture from the soil below.
I know the compost costs a little but the ease of harvest cancels out the extra expense and the hassle of digging up the crop.

Harvest time for one container planted with five seed potatoes
Harvest time for five seed potatoes planted in one dustbin. In this video I show you how many potatoes I harvested from my black plastic container planted with five seed potatoes. Not a
fantastic harvest but every one of them was totally delicious.
Potatoes can be grown in many types of containers from plastic bags to large containers. Ideal for those of us who have restricted space in their garden and love the taste of fresh own grown potatoes. I have even had potatoes growing in my compost bin from old potatoes thrown out to be composted!

Potatoes Harvested from a Straw Bale
Grown in a straw bale, these spuds (potatoes) were VERY easy to grow. I had a leftover straw bale from my neighbor's Halloween decorations. I poured some human urine into the bale over the winter and let it compost. In spring, I stuck a piece of a potato in the straw bale, occasionally watered it, and the spuds grew. Harvesting was VERY very easy, with my bare hands just plucking the spuds out of the straw bale. No need to dig. This was great for a sunny spot on concrete. If I had put the straw bale over soil it probably would have been even better since then the roots could have spread beyond the bale.
