We would like to try growing potatoes using potato towers.
We don't necessarily expect the 100-lb yields some claim, but we're hoping to find a variety to plant successfully in our Portland OR backyard garden.
that not all varieties can be grown in this way,
as they do not set tubers all along the root.
Have you grown potatoes successfully using this method? What varieties did you use, and when did you plant them? Any other small-garden potato-growing tips greatly appreciated.
