To be perfectly honest, this is hardly worth the trouble, but if you want to experiment, fair enough.

Potatoes need about 30 to 40 cm depth of soil and are planted about 10-15cm deep. Each plant in a tub needs about to be about 30 to 40cm apart each way.

The soil can be garden soil mixed with compost of some kind. Plant in March.

Pay attention to watering.
