I love to grow sweet potatoes! And they are fairly easy to grow once you have the right information. I can tell you once you’ve had the taste of fresh, homegrown, sweet potatoes…you’ll never want anything else.
I have a few tips that will help you grow sweet potatoes at home and have the best harvests ever!
Tip #1 – Grow Sweet Potatoes, Some Like it Hot
Unlike traditional tubers that prefer cool weather, your sweet potatoes like it HOT! This is a great summer crop. You’ll want to hold off planting them until you’ll past any springtime frost. Here in Phoenix, I can start putting mine out in late March or early April; but we get warm early here.
