5-1-1 mix for potatoes
I've been trying to find information about growing potatoes in containers. Found lots of different posts, but not so many on using 5-1-1 mix for potatoes. I plan to use either a 30 gallon rubbermaid container, or maybe a half wine barrel. I also plan to use drip irrigagion for this. If anyone has thoughts or experience on using the 5-1-1 mix for potatoes, I'd love to hear your comments.
1. Include the lime?
2. I have access to municipal leaf compost. It is very nice looking, but I admit, this will be the first year using it in my gardens. Would the leaf compost be a good addition to the 5-1-1 mix?
3. Suggestions on fertilizing the potatoes as they grow? What to use and how often?
