St. Patrick’s Day is much more than just partying and wearing green! There are many rich traditions that we often forget about but are still a ton of fun- one of which is gardening. As always, Yescomusa is here to remind you of new ways you can enjoy your home and bring more quality to your life.

St. Patrick’s Day Garden

Peas and potatoes are typically grown in Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day. Luckily for those of us in the United States, the weather works perfectly for growing these types of vegetables. Regardless of whether your yard is still full of snow, or too small to set up a garden you can still celebrate this tradition at home!  

The Tools You Need 

Growing potatoes and peas are actually easier than you think. You don’t need a ton of experience or plant knowledge to grow a full Irish garden! Here are a few simple tools that you need: 

  1. Potting Soil
  2. Flowerpot with drainage hole and saucer

Do potato grow bags really work? Yes! The thick fabric promotes faster and stronger plant growth. Our pack of 3 7 gallon potato grow bag flower pots are perfect for your indoor/outdoor garden, balcony, or yard. That’s because our potato bags with side opening make it easy for you to harvest your carrots, peanuts, taro and other root vegetables without damaging the plant. 

  1. Pea seeds and seed potatoes 
  2. Thin branches or wires used to support the vines 
  3. Water 
  4. Grow lights or Growing tent

Instructions

  1. Add potting soil to your container or fabric flowerpot. Fill the pot two-thirds of the way. 
  2. With one finger, press your pea seeds or potatoes seeds into the dirt and cover with about an inch of soil.
  3. Plant your wires or thin branches, upright into the soil. 
  4. Place the containers in full or partial sunlight 
  5. Water every 2-3. Be sure to keep your soil moist, but never over water 
  6. Harvest vegetables when they are full and heavy. Cut the pods from the pea plants using scissors to reduce damage to the roots

Special Care for Potato Plants

  1. Add more soil as your potato plants grow. Start by adding dirt to the base of the plant, forming it into a little hill. Do this for every four inches of new growth! 
  2. Water your potato plant every 2-3 days. Stop watering when the leaves of the potato plants turn yellow. 
  3. Wait 2-3 weeks for baby potatoes to harvest then another 4-6 weeks for larger potatoes. 

Taking Your Plants Outside

Starting your vegetable garden is easier if you start it inside, give them specific, catered care, and grow strong roots.  If your garden starts to overflow and you think it’s time to move your vegetable garden outside! However, if you move them outside too quickly you run the risk of causing your plant shock which can eventually kill your plants. Here are a few tips on transferring plants to an outdoor environment. 

Start off Small    

Your plant is going to need some time adjusting to the outdoor environment. While climates indoors generally stay the same, depending on where you live, the weather can change drastically in temperature. Take your plants out in the morning for just a few hours at a time, and increase the time each day throughout the week.

Keep Plants Shaded 

Start your plants off with tapered sunlight. Strong sunlight can burn leaves and cause permanent damage.  Whether you place your plants under dappled sunlight beneath a tree or under an awning. Change your plant’s nesting spots as the sun changes direction throughout the day.

Shield your Plants from the Wind

Harsh winds can completely destroy your plants. Either place your place behind other plants, or in corners that break the wind.
