I don't know if the same rule apply for the companion planting when you are growing potatoes in containers?Now that my garden is coming to life I can't seem to find the perfect spot for them, all my options aren't a good companion I have space next to:melons,tomatoes,peppers,cabbage,onions/artichokes(in this particular spot will not be getting the 6-8 hours of sun recomended?most of them are in nursery black pots and a couple in potato bags,let me know what you guys think is my best option,Thanks in advance:-)

You probably already know by now - I'd keep them away from the tomatoes and peppers just so diseases have to really work to get to similar species.

You could use them as part of your shade system for growing saladings over the heat of summer, though.
