Sweet Potato Vine
Just came in from a nice walk on my country road, and it is just like a windy March day! Around 73 degrees. Love it! Though I am a bit concerned about such (so far) a warm Winter and very little moisture! I, too, am suffering a severe case of Spring Fever, so much so, that I decided to start a sweet potato vine on my kitchen window sill, just as our Mothers and Grandmothers did many years ago. As I recall, you simply immerse the bottom portion of the potato in water and wait. I can't recall how long it takes, and am hoping the store-bought potatoes of today haven't been sprayed with a sprout retardant. Has anyone else done this lately, and with what results? Can you take cuttings and root them for hanging baskets next Spring? Are the lime green and purple ground covers you buy in pots in the nurseries the same plant? Got answers?
