How to grow a lot of potatoes in total 1 sq. m . land (5 buckets from a bush)

If you do not have a garden, do not worry, you can grow a lot of potatoes on just one square meter of land. Take a large tuber and 40-45 days before planting, cut it across so that there remains a small jumper with a thickness of 1 cm . Keep the tuber in the light until it sprouts. In the pit, deep 50 cm , length and width 75 cm , put a shovel of well-rotted manure, a handful of ash and 30- 50 g superphosphate. Mix all this - and the "bed" is ready. Now plant the tuber deep 8 cm . When the stems rise 10 cm above ground, drop them on 15 cm loose soil. The stems will again stretch out of the ground, but as soon as the tops of sprouts grow on another 20 cm fill it up again. And so several times until the shoots rise above the pit. Now spud the "potato field". In each filling, do not forget to feed the plant with manure, ash and superphosphate. Water the potato bush during the summer, and pick the flowers in buds. In the north, such a garden can be arranged in a barrel. First, keep it in the room, and with the onset of warm weather, take it outside.

In the fall we dig a crop of 5 buckets from a bush. Between the bushes of potatoes, garlic and marigolds grow perfectly, which the Colorado potato beetle is very afraid of.
