Sweet Potato Planter Collection 5 slips each plus 3 planters £16.98
Sweet Potatoes are a versatile alternative to potatoes and can be roasted, boiled and baked in the same way. They are packed with vitamins and dietary fibre. Did you know you can grow sweet potatoes in bags on the patio just like normal potatoes? This fantastic collection contains 5 slips each of Sweet Potato T65 and Sweet Potato Beauregard Improved, plus a pack of 3 planters. There’s really no digging required when you use these handy, re-useable planters with strong handles so you can move them around your garden, backyard or patio depending on where you want to position your potato plot. Just fill each one with about 40 litres of multi-purpose compost and plant your slips. Bags can be re-used over a number of years. Much more attractive than your average gro-bag, they look great once the lush green leaves of your plants start coming up. Sweet Potato T65 Demand has increased year on year over the past 3 years as gardeners find that growing a successful crop of sweet potatoes is rewarding and satisfying. Although considered a tropical plant it performs well in our climate. T65 has reddish skin colour but a creamy white flesh. Still the most reliable and vigorous variety producing good sized tubers.
