Episode 82: ‘strawing up’ potatoes
Earthing up potatoes? Ivonne shares her experience with ‘strawing up’: not filling the growing bag with layers of soil, but mulching with straw. And she’s obviously going through a learning curve!
Ivonne mentions the ‘potato towers’ she read about. Interested? There are lots of articles and videos on the subject on internet. For example:
- Growing potatoes using a potato tower
- Growing potatoes in towers
Nice TouTube video. But please don’t use the peat mentioned in the video, for environmental reasons.
