We harvested some of our Home Guard potatoes after growing for 4 months in our Root Veg Planter.
The pots were bulging, packed with delicious spuds just waiting to be harvested! We harvested the biggest spuds from just one of the pots – weighing in at 1.5kg of potatoes!
We then returned the pot back to the Root Veg Planter to allow the smaller tubers carry on growing for a couple more weeks.
Home Guard Potatoes are first early potatoes and are best planted between February and March. To harvest these potatoes from your Quadgrow Root Veg Planter, remove the plant from it's pot, then simply pick the potatoes out from the compost.
