Watering potatoes in tower
Was considering growing potatoes this year. I've grown them before in a bag (in the UK).. but am now living in a semi-arrid desert in Utah. I have no-dig raised beds, which are watered daily with an automatic soaker hose under mulch. I was thinking of making a potato tower out of cement blocks (less evaporation from the sides). I'm busy and unable to water daily, so would like to have the hose do the work. If I have the hose wrapped around the plant on the inside bottom of the tower, can I count on the base roots to supply the entire plant as it grows as I build/fill the tower?
