Growing Calendar for Sweet Potato Bonita Gro-Kit
Delivery: Mid May to Late May
Exotic, tasty nutritious as well as decorative as a garden plant, sweet potatoes are a great crop to grow in large containers against a wall or in a structure up which it can climb freely. As you can grow them in a container you can even give them a try on your balcony even if you’re without a garden.
Just choose a sunny position for these; they’re half-hardy so will really appreciate the summer sun. Mist the stems in summer with a fine hose spray as they need high humidity to thrive.
Our Sweet potato ‘Bonita’ Gro-Kits are perfect for growing these tasty crops; one kit comes with;

As my product was waiting at the post office for me to collect not all plug plants survived- hence would be good to know when they will be sent out.
I live in the N-E and have just discovered that sweet potato Bonita requires a minimum temperature of 55F to set tubers, which is unlikely for me to achieve. Maybe this could be mentioned in your catalogue?
