Sweet potatoes are great for pulping, for making potato skins and the flavour is great. A popular hit with all the family it’s naturally sweet in taste and fluffy in texture and has superfood status to add.

Grow your own as you get lots of ‘potatoes’ appear beneath pretty climbing plant decorated with heart-like leaves and pretty trumpets for flowers. Appealing to the eyes while you wait for your sweet potatoes ready in mid summer and into autumn.

Sent to you as five ‘slips’ – young plants developed from the potato tubers, ready to produce a good and effective root system once planted.

As soon as the slips arrive we recommend you immerse them in a glass of water so that ¾ of every stem is below the water; leave slips for up to seven days to perk up and firm up before you plant them in rich soil.

Place a trellis by the wall if growing in containers or up a wigwam of bamboos.
