Summary: Short piece on how to grow potatoes in gardens and allotments in Britain, 1918.
Description: A gardener performs the actions. Larger potatoes are split in two before planting. Trenches in the garden are about two feet apart. Garden refuse is burnt as potash and spread over the trenches. The potatoes are then planted about a foot apart. Allotment holders usually plant directly rather than digging a trench first.
