A complete guide to planting potatoes in a potato bag.

After finding two potatoes, while preparing dinner last night, beginning to produce shoots I decided to plant them out into potato growing bags.

I've not used potato bags before so I'm as keen as you to see the results. So far we're off to a good start with both potatoes taking off.

Part 2.

Top dressing the potatoes now that they have grown.

I'm using a blend of 50/50 potting mix mixed with homemade compost. Also finished off the top inch or two with Searle's 5 in 1 for a little added kick along.

Probably roll the sides up and one more application of potting mix and compost and I'll just sit back and wait.

Why grow a dwarf mulberry tree in a pot.

Dwarf Mulberry. Growing on in a pot.

When it comes to Mulberries, 'dwarf' is a relative term. Still capable of growing to three meters tall. That's a large shrub or small tree still.

With regular pruning after fruiting and potting into a 600mm pot, restricting the size of the root ball, I am hoping to keep this one to around two metres tall.

Are you growing a dwaef mulberry? Got anything you'd like to add? Let us know in the comments below!

Growing Zucchini. How to plant and grow.

Growing zucchini.

Part one and two in my quest to grow zucchini without being plagued by blossom end rot.

 After adding cow manure, compost, blood and bone and lime and letting it sit for a month it's now time to add to add the final piece of the puzzle, some gypsum.

Pop in a few seeds and sit back and wait.

Planting corn and sunflower before the rain arrives

Rain has been predicted.

And nothing germinates seeds like rain and for this reason, if I've got plans to plant anything in the near future then I get them in a soon as possible.

In this instance, it's Corn and Sunflower.

Please cornsider excusing me but it's hard to pass up a bad corny joke or three.
