Growing Potato

A friend was advising me when I was planting potatoes. He even dug the trench for me. He then told me to put the spuds on the pile of dirt, not in the trench, about a thumb length down. As I'd never planted potatoes before I duly followed his directions. I now read this info only to find that they should have gone in the trench! What now?

If the plants are quite small try transplanting them into the trench. Make sure you keep as much soil around the roots as possible. - like use a shovel and place them in the trench carefully so not to let the soil fall away.
