Growing Sweet Potatoes In Containers-Digging -Curing-Storing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3E9RBp...

Growing sweet potato plants in containers works provided you have a deep enough and large enough containers.

I planted several sweet potato plants in this container, vardamen and beaurgard varieties, both are excellent tasting.

Sweet Potatoes can get pretty big within a season, I have had some sweet potatoes that I planted in the ground the size of a football, and that is no lie.. I really don't like them to get that big but if I wait till our first frost this can happen.

So I decided this year to try my luck of planting sweet potatoes in containers, and it turns out it works.

Sweet Potato plants like heat and sun conditions , and I found they like plenty of moisture too.

You can harvest your sweet potatoes usually after the first frost however I wouldn't be afraid to check them earlier.

Without pulling out the entire plant and digging the whole plant, just go alongside the mounded plant and use a trough and see if you can find a few .

Now with the sweet potatoes in a container it may be a little trickier to dig but still doable.

The plastic container I planted the sweet potatoes in was approximately 3ft around x2ft deep , I wanted to make sure it would be large enough. This seems to work .

I will make another video when I actually harvest the sweet potatoes, which should be soon. #dianemummgardenvideos
