Growing “No Dig” Potatoes From Seed To Harvest… – Eco Snippets

Growing “No Dig” Potatoes From Seed To Harvest…

Growing “No Dig” Potatoes From Seed To Harvest...

See the whole process of growing “no dig” potatoes from sowing to “earthing up” to harvest, by pulling not digging. Potato plants easily root into undisturbed, no dig soil, while developing potatoes need soft, surface material to grow in.

It’s often assumed that potatoes just won’t grow in soil that has not been thoroughly loosened, but the techniques shown in the video below show the opposite.

Filmed at Charles Dowding’s Homeacres garden from April to July 2018, in a spring that started cool and wet, then turned hot and dry after 3rd May. Charles Dowding’s garden is no dig and you see how few weeds are growing. He spends most of his time planting and picking, about two hours/week on weeding a quarter acre/1000 m2. Check it out below…

You can also check out some of Charles’s best selling gardening books below for more great information on all aspects of growing your own highly productive garden…
