I have small 60x80 cm raised bed boxes made from pallet collars. I have planted 8 uncut seed potatoes in such collar, so mine are planted even closer. We eat the spuds from my raised beds as fresh new potatoes, so I am not trying to get them to grow really large and usually harvest them before the tops die. This year I have potatoes in five 11" containers and two boxes, so I may let the other box grow longer to see how they grow so crowded. The same variety is also field grown, so I could compare how the tight spacing affects.
