I bought two varieties, Maris Peer & Pentland Javelin. I am growing Maris Peer & the boy (he is 10) is growing Pentland Javelin.
We seem to have an excess of the blue recycling boxes, this excess is probally down to the fact that Mike likes to make use of items that other people no longer use. I also have two large yellow builders buckets that Mike spotted on the moterway. He passed them at night & moved them from the road for safety & as they were still there when he passed by later, he relocated them for me. We are going to grow courgettes in them next year.
Anyway back to the potatoes. The boy & I put some compost into the bottom of each container. We then added our potatoes & covered with more compost. We added some fertiliser granules & then watered.
The boy marked our initials & the variety on the side of each box. Also because he had a rather large seed potato he decided to mark that also. Just to make sure that I wouldn't steal it & swap for one of mine. Awful child! They boxes will be left outside until September & then moved into the greenhouse to protect from frost.
