I'm doing potatoes in bags this year.
Since I will be choosing the growing medium, what would they like best?

If I was buying grow media for potato bags... which I never have. I would probably do something like 1 part sand, 1 part peat, and .5 parts well rotted but still with some carboniferous woody bits swimming with mycorhizia type compost. Something like that would sound good to me.

Oh, and probably a couple ounces of Lime to go with that peat.

Thanks for your reply!
Sounds easy and cheap, no manure, huh?

No, but keep in mind I'm shooting from the hip!
 
Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
