    Question for you. Do you plant the sweet potato slips into cups of soil to be planted later in the spring in the garden or do you let them grow and plant the slip directly into the garden? And what is the planting direction for the slips? Thank you in advance. I love your videos.

        thank you! i want to try that- maybe in my old aquarium! once the slips form on the sweet potato- if it is too early to plant outside do i toss them , plant them in posts, or ? mine has leaves – but it is still pretty cold here at night. will it make more slips after i cut them off? how do i plant the slips ? many thanks!

        You can let you slips grow and stay attached to the potato till they get to 10 12 14 inches cut them off place them in a jar of water so they can grow roots they plant them in the ground when it get warm and yes the potato will re grow slips after you cut them off
