Grow spuds in a BAG!




  1. Cut a few holes in the bottom of a supermarket carrier bag
  2. Fill the bag with soil/compost
  3. Carefully bury a ‘chitted’ potato
  4. Water once a week to keep soil damp
  5. After about 10 weeks you can lift out the bag and have a cheeky peek to see if you have any babies.

There’s a great video of a guy and his dog Molly showing how you can pick your crop gradually over a month or so. Watch here!

NB This won’t make you self-sufficient in chips – it’s more for the fun of it!
