Over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, the members of The Stamford Hill Community Garden began potting up their competition entries for this year. Why not join in on the fun and see what you can do. The aim is to produce quantity according to weight - to grow as much as possible from just one seed potato in a bucket. Judgement Day (aka "The Great British Weigh-off") will take place around mid September, weather permitting. We are reusing 14 liter plastic buckets purchased last year from Wickes but you may use any container that holds up to 14 liters of growing medium. There are no restrictions on which cultivar of seed potato you can use so long as you plant only one tuber in your container. Myself, I've chosen an Osprey white-skinned potato. There are also no restrictions on the growing medium - whether you choose to use compost, garden soil, sand, straw, shredded paper or other custom mixtures is all up to you. Fertilizers, whether it be type, strength or dosage is all up to you. However, doping by embedding foreign objects such as lead strips, coins or stones etc is definitely verboten. This above all: to thine own self be Irn-Bru. Errr, that is, be liquid in your thinking, and be an upstanding pillar of the community, ...like girders. Seeing that you will not be my direct competitors: good luck and happy growing!
