Zone 00851 | Anonymous added on October 31, 2021 | Answered

Hi, i have the purple sweet potato slips and I want to grow them in grow bags. I don’t have sandy soil, what soil can I use? Can I just mix regular potting soil with peat moss or compost?

They need the sandy loam soil so they don't sit in a moist environment and rot. So, I would try to use a fast draining soil for the bags. You can use a potting soil and add compost, but if you can, also add some sand. You can purchase a small bag of sand at home improvement stores. Or, add perlite to the mix.
