Seed potatoes can be purchased from nurseries or online. Look for reputable retailers that offer organic varieties.
To increase your odds of growing healthy, productive plants you’ll need to take some time to properly prepare your seed potatoes before planting them.
When choosing a spot to put your potato container garden, look for an area that gets at least six hours of direct sunlight each day.

Any plastic or metal pot will do, just make sure there are plenty of drainage holes in the bottom. If there are only a couple, take a drill and make a few more of your own.
For this reason, it is incredibly important that you do two things: first, place your seed potato at the right depth, and, second, “hill” soil as the plant grows.
