Planting Sweet Potato Slips
I am growing sweet potatoes this year in large containers. I have watched videos on rooting and growing slips. My question is, are the slips planted low in the container and then filled in as they grow, such as other potatoes, or is the container filled with soil and the slips planted on top as you would any other plant?

Because these plants are actually not related, they sweet potaotes are not grown the same as regular potato plants. For container growing, you would plant your slips anywhere from 3-6 inches deep, burying them completely with exception to any top growth that may be present.
