Potato Growing Hacks

Potato Growing Hacks

Potatoes are a staple in most home gardens and in general, they are very easy to grow for even the most novice of gardeners. If you’re looking to try your hand at growing your own potatoes this summer, here are a few tips to get you started!

Quality Matters

You can plant potatoes using leftovers from store bought potatos but you will find that choosing a high quality seed potato that is suitable to your local climate will usually give you better results.

Location, Location

Potatoes are a cool weather crop and prefer a growing temperurature around 64-68 degrees. In cooler climates, plant in full sun for extra warmth. In warmer climates, potatos may do better in a more shaded spot.

Potatoes can be a space consuming plant but if you’d like to grow potatoes with limited space, a potato grow bag is a fantastic option, allowing you to grow potatoes wherever you have a little extra space – on your deck, balcony, etc.

Keep Tubers Covered

Tubers exposed to sunlight while growing may form a green skin. To prevent this, keep tubers fully covered and mulch heavily to prevent sunlight from getting threw!

Watch Out!

The biggest issues with potatoes are overwatering, disease and insects. Overwatering, especially early on, can cause the seed potatoes to rot. A consistant water level of about 1-2 inches/week is best.

Potatoes can be at risk to a variety of insects and diseases. A great way to reduce this risk is with companion planting. Fortunately, there is a wide selection of vegetables, herbs and even flowers that can help project your potato crops! For more information on companion planting, including 30 plants that help and 8 you should avoid, check out this fantastic article by Rural Sprout!

Rotate Your Crops

To keep soil healthy, you should not plant potatoes in the same spot repeatedly. Instead, rotate potatoes through-out your garden on a 3 year schedule, planting non-Solanaceae crops in between.

If you’re using a grow bag, replace the soil between each planting to ensure your potatoes get fresh, nutrient rich soil each year.

Keep Them Longer

You can start harvesting potatoes as soon as the plant finishes blooming but if you’re growing potatoes to store for future use, give them plenty of time to mature. Once harvested, cure potatoes and store in a dark, cool area in a box or bin that allows for some ventilation.

Trend Watch: Urban Jungle

Trend Watch: Urban Jungle

We’ve all spent the last year and a half juggling an every changing environment and spending more time at home than ever before. It’s not surprising that, as the 2022 trend predictions begin to emerge, we are seeing this reflected in the trends coming into play. Many of these trends reflect our design to create a cozy, more welcoming home environment and bring nature indoors with us as well. Urban Jungle is one such trend, seeing homeowners looking for ways to add plants and greenery into their homes with houseplants, green colors and plant-inspired patterns!

Photo Source

While living plants are the key to this design style (According to HGTV, faux houseplants are out for 2022!) – if you don’t have the time to maintain a wide selection of living plants, mixing living plants with textiles and accessories in bold plant inspired patterns is a great way to achieve this look without the maintenance!

Image Source

If you’re looking to embrace more greenery in your home, here are some of our favorite ideas!

Leaf print curtains are a great way to add a bold green flair to your space! We love these designer leaf print draperies available in a chenille for light control or sheer tulle to allow more light to filter threw if you prefer!

This tropical leaf print duvet set is a great way to give your bedroom the feeling of a tropical outdoor paradise! Paid with soft, oceany blues as seen here for an airy, modern look or with deep browns for a more traditional, dramatic look!

Not everything in your Urban Jungle needs to be green! This gold leaf sculpture is a great way to bring in a nature-inspired shape with a touch of modern luxury! We think this would look stunning mixed in with a few potted plants as well!

Throw pillows are always a great (and affordable) way to bring current trends into your space! Simply slip these pillow covers over your existing throw pillows and remove later on when you’re ready for a new look!

Better Plant Displays

Love your houseplants? You’re not alone! Houseplants have become a popular hobby over the past year, leaving many of us looking for stylish ways to incorporate more houseplants into our decor! Here are a few great ideas to get you started!

Seagrass baskets create a natural, classic look that works with almost any design style and they are perfect for hiding basic, boring plant pots as well!

Macrame has made a comeback – with a wide variety of macrame plant holders in modern styles available that allow you to suspend pots from the wall or ceiling, freeing up shelf and floor space!

Plants as art! Decorative wall planters are a great way to use vertical space for your plants and create an artistic feature at the same time! See all of our planters and pots here.

A Mid-Summer’s Night Dream Bedroom

A Mid-Summer's Night Dream Bedroom

The inspiration for this bedroom design concept is a whimsical “Mid-Summer’s Night Dream” with a rustic, industrial touch. I wanted to create the feeling that you were curling up in a magical forest, but with a modern edge!

Crisp white walls with a grey washed wood-clad focal wall contrast with the dark, moody flooring to create the base for this room. A gorgeous custom bed mixes the natural look of wood with the industrial feel of steel to bring a modern edge to the room. A simple black night table maintains the modern feel while allowing the bed to remain the star of the space.

Greenery is what really brings this space to life! Curtains in a plant pattern fabric add a punch of natural color to the decor while potted plants, both real and faux, in a variety of sizes, carry that magical forest feel through-out the room.

When asked to help select the curated selection of staff favorites for May, you can tell that the upcoming gardening season is on everyone’s mind! Here are some of our staff favorites of plants and gardening this month!

Handmade Macrame Plant Pot Holders: Growing houseplants is a passion of mine, but I also have a toddler and a few pets running around the home. These are the perfect solution to keep plants out of reach and the macrame look is on trend right now as well! I love that there is a variety of styles available so I was able to pick and choose the ones that worked best for my home! – Alyssa

Vertical Wall Gardens: I love the idea of Vertical Gardening! I do have a fairly decent back yard for a city lot but I also have a busy family and young grandchildren so I don’t want to use up all of my yard space for gardening. Using wall space or space along the fence leaves the rest of my yard open for gathering and playing! – Crystal

I’m currently obsessed with succulents and I love these silicone molds for creating my own unique planters but they could also be used to create custom candles, a little office desk organize and more! – Mandy

Potato Grow Bags: I love potatoes. My kids love potatoes. But the majority of my garden consists of planter boxes and pots so potatoes aren’t on the agenda, until now! I actually order a few of these for myself last fall and I am looking forward to giving them a try this summer and growing my own potatoes right on my back deck! – Crystal

Want to know what we’re loving right now? Starting this month, the staff at Canadian Home Trends Magazine, The Marc & Mandy Show and ShopCHT will be selecting some of their current favorites from ShopCHT – bringing you a much loved, curated collection of products worth looking at!

Staff Favorites for April 2021

New to ShopCHT this month, these gorgeous cushion covers will bring amazing color and texture to your home or outdoor living space! In fact, our Associate Design Editor, Crystal Williams recently featured them in an outdoor decor concept for the Cottage & Outdoor Living Issue of Canadian Home Trends Magazine! (Download a copy free by clicking here!)

This stunning, modern LED fixture was inspired by the flow of music notes. Marc, Editor-in-Chief of Canadian Home Trends Magazine selected this as his favorite because he said it reminded him of his wife, Mandy (co-host of the Marc & Mandy Show) and her love for music!

We’ve recently launched an expanded selection of draperies here at ShopCHT. Draperies are making a comeback in modern spaces, adding a soft texture and occasionally a pop of color and pattern to otherwise neutral spaces! This geometric pattern is a particular favorite among our staff!

Our home offices are becoming a commonly used space like never before – and selecting the right desk lamp that is both functional and pretty is important. Well the staff are in agreement that this lamp is a gorgeous choice, we can’t seem to agree on which is better: green, pink, yellow or black! Fortunately, it comes in all four colors so you can pick your favorite to! (PS: If you missed last week’s post: our Associate Design Editor is a fan of the Yellow and included it in her home office design board!)

One of our senior staff members recently welcomed her first grandson so naturally, her pick for this month was this adorable, cuddly elephant cushion that would look amazing in any nursery!

Yellow & Gray Home Office Inspiration

Yellow & Gray Home Office Inspiration

Home Office Inspiration – Yellow is a bright, energetic color that is often associated with optimism and creativity, making it a great choice for a home office or den where creativity and high energy are desired. Gray, on the other hand, is a very calming and modern color. Pairing the two together creates a space that feels modern and fresh and full of energy without becoming overwhelming!

The base for this room starts with a modern light-colored wood floor and a pale grey wall that provide a bright and airy backdrop for a statement-making dark stone fireplace. The multi-colored stone veneer offers visual detail and texture to the space. I love the variety of colors in the stone – it would be easy to update the room to a different color scheme simply by pulling a different color from the stone!

Home Office Inspiration

For furniture, I selected neutral colors with warm wood details and a touch of black. These pieces are flexible enough to allow you to easily update the look in the future simply by changing out the accessories. The warm wood finishes bring a cozy, nature-inspired feel to the space while the black details help to ground the space.

To bring in the energetic pop of color, I selected a desk lamp, curtain panels, artwork and throw pillows that have a touch of yellow in each, helping to carry the color through-out the room without overwhelming the space.

Beachy Backyard Oasis Inspiration

Beachy Backyard Oasis Inspiration

The two-tone finish on this rustic picnic table inspired me to create a backyard oasis inspired by afternoons spent at the beach. A color palette that combines a mix of ocean-inspired blues with bright, sunny yellows is complimented with vintage details and rustic, drift-wood inspired wooden finishes.

SHOP: Macrame inspired coasters

If you’ve ever watched one of my design segments on the Marc & Mandy Show, you’ll know that I love mixing and matching dinnerware to add more visual depth and interest to a tablescape. This outdoor place set, which is available in 4 different colors, is the perfect way to do just that! I added in a wood-look tray and rustic wood and steel candle holders to bring that natural, vintage feel to the tablescape. A simple macrame style drink coaster at each place setting is the perfect finishing touch to add a it of textured detail.

SHOP: Cozy Knit Pillow Covers in a variety of colors for any space!

A pretty printed outdoor rug elevates the space, giving it a touch of elegance while a few throw pillows in a soft knit add texture and create an inviting, cozy feel to the space. To finish the look, a vintage style steel bucket is the perfect place to display a selection of beverage on ice!

After a year of self-isolation and travel restrictions, we understand more then ever the importance of creating space in our own homes and yards where we can escape and unwind! For this design concept, I wanted to embrace the idea of creating an outdoor space that is just as lovely as your indoor spaces and bring in exotic touches that will transport you to other parts of the world!

The starting point for this design board was the picnic table and rug. The Summerwood table and benches are a modern take on the traditional picnic table and offer a stylish look that could just as easily sit in your dining room! The Persian style rug caught my eye because it offers bold colors and traditional elegance but in an outdoor rug!

Textiles with plenty of texture are important in creating this exotic oasis. Pillows with plush detailing combine with a bold red throw pillow to create a bold statement that looks and feels cozy and inviting. Of course, I couldn’t resist taking it a step further with a gorgeous bohemian style hammock that makes me think of lazy summer afternoons at the cottage spent reading a good book while swaying softly in the breeze!
