Sweet potato slips

Zone northern Colorado | betteokeefe added on March 16, 2015 | Answered

This morning you answered my question about taking the sprouted sweet potato slip from the potato. Now my husband has yet another question about the depth of the large box or container. How deep should the box or container be? Should it have 3, 6 or 12 inches of peat moss?

You plant the sweet potatoes about 2 in. deep in a box containing a mixture of peat moss and soil. So the amount of inches of mix and the depth of the box depends on how much is needed to cover the potatoes two inches.
