Potatoes in pots

Hi Mr Potato Head!

Yes - Feb's KG issue is certainly interesting regarding potatoes in pots. Basically he is using a variation on that used with Tomatoes in Greenhouses where you have a double root system in trenches, watering in one and feeding in the other. What I would like to know is, what kind of yield does he get and does it really matter what sort of 'clean' soil/compost is put in the pot bearing in mind that feeding mainly takes place in the ground? And presumably keel slugs don't find it that easy to get in the drainage holes?
