Abstract

The invention consists of an apparatus with loose sections 2 stacked on top of each other as required in a vertical position to form an upright structure to enable potatoes to be "earthed up" to give a maximum yield. Out of season cultivation could also be used in green houses etc. also in restricted areas. A base plate (4, figure 3) may have drain holes (6, figure 3). The sections 2 may be secured together with bolts 8, a flange ring 8 or locating lips (9, figure 2). A securing strip (10, figure 4) may be used to secure sections 2 together.

Description

<Desc/Clms Page number 1> Potato Growing Structure This invention relates to a potato growing structure.

There is no device specially designed to grow potatoes. During the usual growth cycle of the potato extra earth is banked up around the plant and with this method a better yield is harvested. Our invention will allow a potato plant to give a substantially better yield by planting the seed potato in the first cylindrical section, which has been fixed to the base plate. When the potato plant shows through, another section and soil is added to the first cylinder. This process is repeated by adding extra sections and soil and forcing the potato plant to keep growing giving a substantially better crop. The number of sections that can be added will depend on practicality. Our invention will allow the potato to be grown outdoors as well as indoors so producing an out of season crop.

According to the present invention there is provided a number of hollow cylinders with a location lip formed into each cylinder. The cylinders will be of different diameters to each other. There will also be provided a stabilising base plate with drainage holes in it. The largest diameter cylinder will be fixed to this base plate. The drainage holes will be inside this cylinder. The other cylinders will be stacked on top of each other as required one at a time during the potato growing cycle in the locating lip provided in a vertical position in ascending order with the smallest diameter cylinder located on top

of the structure. Instead of cylindrical sections any other shape could be used, i.e. square, etc. A flange ring could also be used to secure the sections to each other instead of the locating lips. Instead of the sections being of different diameters or sizes the sections could be the same size. Securing strips could also be used to secure the sections to each other.

<Desc/Clms Page number 3>

Special embodiments will now be described with reference to accompanying drawing: Figure 1 illustrates in perspective the apparatus where the sections shown are of the same diameter or size stacked in a vertical position. Figure 2 shows the sections in vertical position reducing in diameter or size.

Figure 3 illustrates base plate with drain holes. Figure 4 shows securing strips if used.

DRAWINGS Figure 1 shows section `1' positioned and secured on base plate `4 '. `3' could be screws to secure `1' and `4 '. `8' flange rings bolting sections '4' and `2' together.

Figure 2 illustrate largest diameter section secured to base plate `4 '. `5' shows section in reducing diameter or size mounted upon each other. `9' show details of locating lip.

Figure 3 shows section `1' or `7' on base plate `4 '. '6' are drain holes in `4'.

Figure 4 illustrates securing strip 10', which can be screwed or bolted to sections `2.'
