To grow a sweet potato plant, also known as ipomoea, plant it in a lush, warm climate while providing plenty of moisture to keep the soil damp. Avoid cold weather exposure when growing sweet potato vines with plant tips from a sustainable gardener in this free video on gardening.

Once you’ve grown your lovely sweet potatoes, here’s one way I love to prepare them. Slice 4-6 sweet potatoes  into 1/4 inch rounds, fan them out on a cookie sheet. Melt a stick of butter. Brush the slices with the melted butter, lightly season with salt and pepper then cut 8-10 Sage leaves into thin strips and evenly distribute over your potato slices and bake for 20-30 minutes or until tender. Everyone will love them!
