    Drill 5 holes in a 5 gallon bucket and place one plant in each bucket. You can get the sweet potatoes slip s at home depot or most garden stores that sell veggies.

    Just put soil about 1/3 full in the bucket, as the sweet potato grows, add more soil, keep doing this 'til the bucket is filled, The potatoes will grow along the 'stem' that you covered.I use landscape material & sew my own 'buckets'. Love my sweet potatoes!!
