Sweet Potatoes have a rich history in Africa and around the world. It is a warm-season crop that produces runners on the surface and then sends down roots for support, producing delicious tubers that can be harvested and turned into an amazing variety of dishes.
Best planted in very well-improved soil, sweet potatoes can take up a fair amount of space if left unchecked. Trained and contained, they will produce handsomely in a relatively small area.
Livingseeds supplies certified virus-free sweet potato cuttings. These cuttings will arrive slightly wilted and this should not be cause for alarm, as the wilting process actually stimulates the growth of roots.
Prior to the arrival of your sweet potato cuttings, prepare your planting site by incorporating a generous amount of well-rotted organic matter. A handful of Talborne Organics Bone Phos and another of Talborne Organics Vita Veg will do wonders for a bumper harvest.
All sweet potato orders are accompanied by full growing instructions.
