Potatoes? again...

itzybitzy_gw(7NC)May 9, 2012

So this is kinda embarrasing (dumb question)I have already asked on the companion planting forum with no answer:( So here we go:I am growing taters for the first time in containers:bags/black nursery containers,...they are doing great so far and now I'm trying to decide where to leave them permanently it seems like every single option I have are not good candidate,I have room next to melons,tomatoes,peppers/cabbage,onions.By the way only the potatoes are in containers the rest of the plants are on the ground.Wich one will be a better option or the companion rule apply only when taters are on the ground?

I have no idea. Potatoes should be maturing shortly, I am starting to dig mine, As the vines die back, you can use the space for something else.

Just keep them away from peppers and tomatoes. They're all vulnerable to the same pests and diseases, so no point in making those areas more attractive than necessary.
