Sweet Potato Starts

I ordered our Sweet Potato starts last week and should be receiving them toward the end of the month. I took the recommendation from a friend who ordered hers from Steele Plant Company last year – a company right here in Tennessee. She had great success and said the company was a pleasure to do business with.

This year I decided to give them a try, as a few of my friends have said they had much better success with sweet potatoes in their tire gardens than they did with regular potatoes.

I decided to order 3 dozen starts – a dozen of 3 different varieties. We’re going to try the Georgia Jets, the Bunch Porto Ricos and the Nancy Halls. The price was $24.49 for the 36 plants. They have several Pricing Specials that you’ll want to review. My order will also come with a 16 page booklet with 4 pages of growing information and 12 pages of recipes. They also have a nice little Growing Tips section on their website.

The company will ship the starts to you when it is ideal planting time in your location. So, if sweet potatoes are on your gardening list for the year, you might want to give Steele Plant Company a look to see if they have something you are looking for!
