Sweet potatoes are heat loving plants that need a long warm growing season but can be grown in every state. Plant in late spring when soil temperatures have reached 70°F. Northern climates will benefit from using black plastic to increase soil temperatures. Sweet potatoes do not fair well in cold weather and temperatures below 45°F can be damaging. Transplanting within 24 hours of receipt is ideal. If cold weather prevents planting immediately, place roots in a vase with a small amount of cool water or plant into moist potting mix and keep at room temperature and indirect sunlight until weather conditions improve for transplanting. Transplant slips at sundown to avoid mid-day sun exposure. Plant slips 12” apart in ridged rows that are 3’ apart. Plant slips so that the white part of the root is fully covered.
