Would anyone hazard an opinion on whether I could get away with growing red potatoes in a 5 gal bucket? I have left over seed potatoes and nowhere to put another raised bed.
I had good luck with potatoes grown in my earthboxes, you got nothing to lose by trying it. Just keep enough room in the bucket to add more dirt later as it grows to effect 'hilling it up'.
Larry, I second what Lou said. I grew potatoes in smart pots before.
