Adding Soil and Compost Mix Around Potato Plants

Photo © Kerry Michaels

You want to add a couple of inches of a soil and compost mix around your potato plants. Be careful not to break the plants while doing this.

You will be covering some of the leaves of your potato plants with your soil compost mix, but you want at least 2/3 of the plant with its leaves to be sticking out of the soil.
