Potatoes & Tomatoes

thirsty_dirt_77(3a)March 17, 2013

In planning this years garden I was thinking of planting my potatoes where I had my tomatoes for the past few last year. (This year the tomatoes will be in the new greenhouse - happy happy!)

We've never had any trouble with blight and in the fall we clean everything out of the garden and compost separately.

I've read on a few occasions that you shouldn't plant potatoes where you've previously grow tomatoes.

Will doing this cause any issues? Any comments?

I wouldn't worry about.

I don't think I would be concerned about it either.

I wouldn't be concerned with planting as you've suggested, however, I've never grown potatoes.

What I would think about, though, is rotation of your planting, taking into consideration the nutritional needs of the vegetables you've been growing and the ones you plan on growing. ;)
