Original message (posted by PeterP)
Just been reading about crop rotation and the reasons why you should not plant potatoes year on year in the same spot. From the risk of carring diseases over from year to year to taking all the nutrients out of the soil. I plant in a raised bed but take approx half of the soil out every year and spread this around my garden beds, I then refill the bed with a mix of fresh soil and manure well mixed in. I also keep new soil in bags ready to bank up the plants has they grow. Maybe next year I will grow some other type of veg in the raised bed and use some of the bags of soil to grow potatoes.
