Growing sweet potato vines is something every gardener should consider. Grown and cared for like average houseplants, these attractive vines add a little something extra to the home or patio.¬†You can use sweet potatoes in the kitchen just like you would use potatoes. Boil them, steam them, mash them, fry them… But sweet potatoes have more uses:

  • Young sweet potato shoots and leaves are yummy in stir fries and salads.
  • Sweet potatoes also make a wonderful quick growing ground cover.
  • You can use them as a living mulch and to keep weeds down.

Sweet potato vines need to have a root system established before being planted in your garden. A jar offers a great way to sprout roots. However, a small dirt planter can also be used. The option will depend on a need or personal preference. Check out this article for further information – click here:
