This past spring I taught a class on how to grow potatoes in containers, including how to build a nifty potato box.
I did manage to find this one stem intact, where you can see some mini tubers forming just above the roots. The potato box idea started about eight years ago when someone wanted to grow potatoes in a small space but didn't like the idea of growing them in a stack of old tires. Lutovsky says although most of his customers aren't able to grow 100 pounds of potatoes in the potato box, he knows one who harvested 124 pounds one season.
Plant in multiple layers, adding a layer of potatoes, soil and side panels, as the vines grow 12 inches above the soil.


Coil a soaker hose through each layer (like a Slinky toy) so the roots at the bottom of the box will get even moisture throughout the growing season. We reserve the right to remove any comment we feel is spammy, NSFW, defamatory, rude, or reckless to the community.
Use your own words (don't copy and paste from elsewhere), be honest and don't pretend to be someone (or something) you're not. Because potatoes grow out of the stem of the potato plant (they are themselves swollen stems), they will form anywhere the stem is not exposed to light. A wooden box is a better option, not just because it's more attractive but because it can be dismantled and stored at the end of each season.


Short-season varieties won't work because they set only a limited number of potatoes before the plants die. I haven’t figured out what went wrong, but it is amazing what a low yield I got given the good sized yield I have been getting from my in-ground potatoes. I did also have to remove a soaker hose from the box, which could have disturbed the root systems enough to drastically reduce production.
