Over-wintering 'Blacky Sweet Potato Vine'
Does anybody do this? I love the way it works as a ground cover in areas that are bare --- so easy to snip off so it won't smother anything important. In the spring I bought one little pot and was able to make ground cover for several areas. Because I don't drive and don't normally buy nursery plants, I want to over-winter this.
I put several 'snips' in water and then potted them up. Will they last over the winter? If I dig up the clumps that are in the ground will I find little potatoes that I can save to plant? (BTW, it did flower (cute little guys but hard to see) so I am hoping for little potatoes to save and plant in areas where I need the cover.)
