Hi,

I am trying to buy ornamental sweet potato, the ones you can grow in a hanging basket, trailing, beautiful vine. There are not edible, quite bitter. Where can I get it from?

I am  only need one.

I live in Slough, but I don't mind ordering online.

    I have no idea but I bought one to cook about six weeks ago, still haven't found a use for it, and by now I think it would almost qualify as ornamental.image

    Pansyface, try it as French fries, it's really good.

    Nice roasted as wellimage

    or mixed with spuds in a mash

    or in a soup,

    or in a risotto

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the cooking advice image.

    And thank you to Dovefromabove, but unfortunately  it says "unavailable"...any other websites? ~Why is it so difficult to find and so famous in pintrest????

    It may well be 'unavailable' because it's too early in the season - lots of plants aren't available the whole year around - try emailing them to see when it will be in stock.

    They're usually in the GCs a bit later, they're not hardy.

    Often called Ipomoea plus a cultivar name. Nice colours and leaf shapes, never been tempted thoughimage

     

  • I use to have them in all my pots when I lived in Canada.  They look beautiful against after plants or on their own.  I've managed to find the online at Sarahraven.com.  Very healthy looking large plugs, 5 for £12.99.  I've put them in my pots but I might be a light early!!
