Another popular way that is also inexpensive is to use a Potato Grow Bag. They are readily available online.

They are easy, durable, reusable, eco-friendly and they get excellent reviews from users too.

Another easy way is to grow your Potatoes in a bucket. This Bucket has 2 individual sections and is another version available for sale online. You can find them on Amazon.

If your barrel does not have drainage, drill 1/4 to 1/2 inch holes that are a minimum of 6 inches apart. It is also a good idea to pop your barrel in a sunny location.

Another good tip is to have it elevated on bricks or something similar. This will allow it to drain correctly, and for the air to circulate properly.
