As the saying goes: "Every great journey begins with a first step." And when it comes to potatoes, the first step is: pre-germination. It's quite easy. It doesn't take much work and it reduces the time until the first crop to between 2 and 3 weeks.
Potatoes can grow well on a balcony. You just need to pay attention to a few things. You need a planting container at least 40 cm tall and with a base of 40 x 40 cm. I’m using an IKEA bag (the square one).
