How many seed potatoes?

Hi,

Got some large space at my old mans to grow some extra spuds this year. We use 30l ports here in the backyard and get some pretty good results last year.

How many seed potatoes would I need for a 100l tub?

It's a blue 200l water barrel chopped in half.

Want the best crop possible - Going for first and second earlies in the first two and then main crop in the second two :)

Cheers

    Have you got plenty of drainage holes in the barrel?

    Yes. Two are fully open and two have several 2” holes drilled in.

    I'd say five spuds too...
