Colourful Splendour is showcasing potatoes this month to make sure you are off to a good starch! Even though they are stem tubers we look at them as a root crop. It is possible to grow potatoes in the home garden in spite of requiring a large space. An ordinary soil with good drainage and compost is required. You can also grow them in tyres – fun for the kids! Growing in specially made pots can be done for the apartment dweller – a new and exciting trend! Thanks Spud for this one!
