Re: How to Grow Potatoes in a Trash Bag

Regarding Sweet Potatoes. You can not grow them the same way as other potatoes. You can grow them in a bin. I have an 4ft x 8ft bin that is approx 2ft deep. I order my sweet potato slips from New Hope Seeds. Basically you plant them and let them vine around. This year I am going to put a trellis in the middle of the bin to try and control the vineing out some. Oh by the way you can eat sweet potato leaves. Not the vine part but yes the leaves.
