sweet potato's in pots

gardenlen(s/e qld aust)October 8, 2012

g'day all,

seen the question asked at times and no doubt good advice already out there.

about 17 months ago when we had decided to sell our last place like all gardeners i went around collecting material and potting it. this 'tater has been with us for around 10 years now, did have a white one but lost it someplace.

anyhow with dry period started plants in the ground easier to tend for than those in pots.

just regular potting mix used and watered when they drooped or i should say when pots were in danger of being blown away, mostly with 2nd hand water.

so as they don't need full sun can be grown in well lit shaded, similar to rainforest floor. only food was what was in the mix.

anyway a surprising result, when we planted them out today.
