I needed a potato grow bag. I wanted to give potatoes another try where I failed the past two years. This, so far, is working great. It's tall enough to give my potatoes plenty of room to grow and wide enough to let in plenty of rain and sunshine. My only recommendation is to avoid colored burlap- the color didn't appear to be set in my burlap.

  • Outdoor friendly fabric, such as burlap or landscape fabric (a super cheap option). 
  • Soil
  • Seed potatoes

Tutorial

I made my bag two layers because the burlap I was using has proven to not be super sturdy. I cut a round bottom and also the wall for both the inner and outer layer.

I sewed the wall into a cylindrical shape, then sewed the bottom to it. I did the same for the other layer. Then I sewed the two together. 

Fill with soil, plant your seed potatoes. Then you continue to add compost/straw/whatever to the bag as your potatoes grow. So far, mine look happy to be in the bag! Wooohoo! I would love potatoes this year.

Kind of wish I'd made three more of these. It's not too late, maybe I'll try to whip up another bag.
