Re: Build Your Own Potato Growing Box

My chart say's that I can plant sweet potatoes in June here in central Fl. Has anyone ever planted sweet potatoes in a potato box ? if I was to try it. Should I fill my box half way and only plant once since S/P grow deeper ? and spread out better ?

Re: Build Your Own Potato Growing Box

Well after 3 months. I opened up my potato box today and dug it out. No spuds at all. I live in Central Fl. I planted irrish potatoes on Feb. 5. My box was 5 by 5. I only added 5 lifts of dirt. By then, there was only 2 green vines still growing. The vine died 4 weeks ago. I added a lift when the vine was around 12 in. long. I left 6 inch's showing. Any thoughts on what went wrong ? I bought 6 yards of good garden soil to start. I mixed a little rabbit manure and hay along with it as I went. Very little.
