Re: Video: How to Grow Potatoes in Containers

You can grow potatoes in a wooden box, about 18"x 18" and start off about 18" high. You add soil and plant your potatoes. Then you harvest new potatoes and can keep doing this all season. As the plant produces new potatoes harvest them. Then add another row of side boards to your box, add about 6 inches of soil. The plant will develop new roots along the stem and grow more new potatoes. Keep this up all season and you will constantly have 'new potatoes'! I have done this and it's great to have new potatoes all season.

Re: Rosemary: A Robust Herb of Winter

I forgot to mention, because my plants are indoors when the heat is on this can cause them to dry out and drop needles quickly. So I mist my plants every morning.

Re: Rosemary: A Robust Herb of Winter

I love rosemary and I live in zone 5 area of Ontario, Canada. This does not stop me from growing rosemary. I have 2 large plants in urns that are out of doors from late spring until early fall, that is when I bring them indoors to enjoy their fragrance and use for cooking. I could topiary them, but I am training them as I clip them for stews and other culinary uses. I also will clip a stem and throw it in my bath. My plants bloom twice a year, once in June and again in December, just to brighten up my day!!
