Potatoes

Hi, I grow potatoes in bags every year, with quite a good result.  My question to you all is, could I use my home-made compost instead of bought multipurpose compost?  I seem to end up with so much compost in my bins and hope that this would be one way of using some of it.  I would of course add potato fertilizer.

    That is why I did last year only added chicken pellets-I think to keep buying bags of compost makes it less cost effective to a point where it may not be worth the effortimage

    I tend to use a mixture of both quite successfully in my bags, watch out for slugs and other nasties though. I also put in some gromore or similar pellets .
