How To Grow Q&A


I used the potato bags this year for the first time and am very pleased with the results. I harvested on bag yesterday and was very happy with the results. However, how do I store the bag of soil so I can reuse it next year?

Hi Pat – We recommend that you discard the soil, or add it to a compost heap. For potato plants to do well, they draw nutrients from the soil — they remove those nutrients. So next year the soil will not be as nutritious for your plants. Particularly in container growing, it’s useful to replenish soil regularly. You’ll have much happier, healthier plants if you provide them with fresh, rich soil each season.
