I always plant a few potatoes and kumara in late winter, earthing them up as required as long as the danger of frosts remains, but the ground takes a great deal of preparation. This season there has been a lot of rain, so I was still waiting for the soil to dry out a bit when I was given the opportunity to review these grow bags. I even had a new bag of potting compost in the shed, so it was all go. In a very short time, three of the bags were planted with potatoes and the remaining two with kumara.

Because these are both root vegetables that require earthing up during the first stages of their growth, I filled the containers to the two-thirds mark so that more soil can be added as needed. The bags are made of lightweight material and are small enough to be lifted easily, so I can move them at any time without disturbing the crops inside. They have been designed to be user friendly; there are two handles for lifting, and a side flap secured with velcro which can be used for accessing the crop without pulling out the whole plant.

When I first unfolded the bags, I was unsure as to whether they would stand up. I always have a couple of insulated bags in the car for transporting frozens, the kind that have a zipper closure, and find they often tip over. These grow bags are made of a similar padded material, but when I unfolded them, I discovered that they have been designed with a foldout base which ensures that the container remains upright even before the soil and plants are added. Once the soil is added, they are even more solid so there is no risk of the contents spilling out. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into the design.

I am looking forward to monitoring how well the vegetables grow inside the bags, and comparing them to the rest of the sprouted tubers which will go into the ground. If the results are good - and I have no reason to suspect that they will not be - I will be getting some more bags later this year. It would simplify crop rotation as the same bags could be recycled year after year with only the growing medium being replaced. Potatoes, like tomatoes, are prone to disease if they are replanted in the same soil so this method of growing would ensure sound crops every time. And no matter how bad the weather may be, I will be assured of some early vegetables.
