Good enough to eat - potatoes.
If you have a greenhouse, growing your own spuds in pots for Christmas is easy.
Use a container at least 30cm deep and wide with drainage holes in the base. Add a layer of potting compost mixed with garden compost around 10cm thick for 30cm deep pots and plant one to three tubers per pot.
Cover them with 15cm of compost. As the foliage develops, earth up the potatoes with further compost until the pot is full to within 5cm of the top, leaving a lip to aid watering.
Keep the pot well watered and feed with a general purpose liquid feed. The tubers can be left in the pots until needed during the festive season.
