Planting Moving/Transplant or Cuttings? Sweet Potatoes.


Stone Cold Crazy
Boght four sweet potatoe plants in Sprig. Put them in and they are seemingly doing well.

Problem-the Move is upcoming in the next few weeks.

Raised Beds are being disassembled and brought with us.

So need to determine if I can take cuttings, dig out and transplant or sacrifice them.

Going to lose so yard long beans and squashes-both producing nicely but both are growing thru Chicken fencing I use as their Trellises for vertical growing.

I do have either squash or watermelon that has begun sprouting which I will take and about ten or 12 Okra I plan to take as well.


I have only two sweet potato plants doing well now, and two that are not. Here where I am, NW part of central Arkansas, it's too late to plant more, even if they are already rooted. I don't want to use water on something that is likely to freeze before it's matured. So I've been buying a few sweet potatoes at the grocery store whenever I go there, hoping I'll at least have a few that might last to make next years slips.

I'm not counting on getting ANY bedding plants next spring! The way things are right now, I can't imagine there will be any big trucks of plants coming from Bonnie Plants or any other, either.

As long as some of the roots are in clean water or wet potato bag material and the leaves exposed to sunlight I can't see a problem

I have thousands of sweet potato plants.
