Sweet Potato

can be difficult to grow

Plant rooted cuttings 30cm apart, burying half of stem in 20cm high mounds in fertile soil in a greenhouse. Can also plant tubers or sow seed.

Water well and feed. Spray greenhouse floor with water to keep air humid. Pinch out growing tip of trailing stems from 60cm.

Dig up when leaves are turning yellow. Dry in sun for 4-7 days before storing. Green leaves can be eaten like spinach.
