Add Soil to Potatoes

Whether you are growing your potatoes in a bucket, box, or directly in the ground, you need to add soil to your potatoes as they grow. Once the plant has grown 4-5 inches above the soil, add enough soil so that just the tip is showing. This will encourage new growth and more potatoes to be grown.
