After a dismal effort growing potatoes in tires last year, I thought I should do some research on other methods of growing them so I can plan and start early this year.

Here is what I found in the way of video guides to the main methods people are trying (and a few comments on each).

It seems a lot of folks had the same issues as me when trying the grow them in tires - all stems, a tire tower full of soil and just a few spuds at the very bottom.

Who has had success in any of these methods?
