Sweet Potato - Bonita x5 Plants

  • Catalogue Code 1080-5764
  • Pack Contents: 5x Sweet Potato Plants
  • Sweeter alternative to potatoes
  • Space-saving climber
  • Attractive plants for the ornamental garden

Get this high yielding sweet potato variety, particularly suited to frying on account of its low water content. It grows well in moist soil given full sun and the mature tubers boast a high level of sweetness.

These sweet potatoes are the tubers of attractive climbing or spreading plant Ipomaea batatas with ornamental heart-shaped leaves and ‘morning-glory’ trumpet flowers, so ideal for decorating the vegetable plot while waiting for ample harvests.

We recommend you grow your plants on in a sunny position – they’re half hardy so really appreciate the sun and high humidity levels to thrive.

These young plants have been grown by our experts and delivered to you with a healthy network of roots, ready for you to plant on into containers.

Features

  • Good in containers and pots
  • Will flower well in full sun

Absolutely fine, it was a hot period when the delivery took place but, fellow gardeners, I can honestly say the plants were delivered in excellent condition and, one week later, are growing well despite some having been pulled up twice by marauding blackbirds who were tempted by the dark & damp compost.
