Should this be planted in the ground or in another bucket?

Asked by GardenLover13 July 25, 2020

Answers

Neither. It is meant to be like a planter on the porch. Directions on what kind of soil & fertilizer to buy. I used it last year and got several smaller potatoes. I didn't plant it this year. I'll do it again next year. I may use it to repot my Begonia this year. Potatoes need to be planted earlier than I did last year.

Unfortunately, squirrels and other critters can be a nuisance. However, because the planter only has one major exposed surface (the top) it's easier to keep them at bay. Consider using a physical barrier, such as plastic netting, fencing, or chicken wire. You can also you specialized repellents that come in pellet or spray form. Mulch and coffee grounds spread over top of the soil can also help deter them. There are many other techniques available. Check online or with your local store to see if they have any other novel tips and tricks and thanks again for your question.

How do you put together irrigation tube and how deep do you insert it into soil? I have three pieces of plastic tubing.

Asked by Chrissy483 May 11, 2018
1
Answer

There should be three pieces; one piece is just a solid fill tube, second piece is a connector, third piece is another fill tube with holes. Use the connector to join the two fill tubes. Once you connect the tubes place the tube with the holes to the bottom of the tub. Pack the potting mix around the irrigation tube, place your seeds. Make sure you leave the tube above the mix so you can water your potatoes when needed. Any other questions call our customer service department 1-800-458-0839

Depending on how much you desire to grow. I used about 12 total in 3 layers. You need to experiment with it.

How do I use the water irrigation tube? Do I i fill it everyday? Make sure it stays full? Where do I place it?

Asked by Dbelle April 14, 2017

Answer

I stuck mine near the center of the pot. I have only had to water a couple of times as we have had quite a bit of rain here. Depending on your weather, I'd fill the irrigation tube every few days (2-3). The water seeps out to the plants in the depths and "outer rings" of the tub. Don't keep the spuds soaking wet. They need to be dry every once and a while. That's why this spud tub has all the holes in it, so air can circulate.

The received item matched the photos - description from the website. Although I had confirmed the measurements it was nice to see it really is as expected. Here in the NE it's still too cold & wet to start planting but I'm looking forward to growing some potatoes!
