Tasty and sweet
Traditionally sweet potatoes have been grown from ‘slips’, but quality can be poor and results disappointing. At Suttons we have been working to supply a better product, and hence the introduction of Super Plugs, produced on our nursery from virus-free stock. Well-rooted and actively growing, they are a significant improvement on traditional ‘slips’. Simply pot and grow on in a frost-free environment until June, then either re-pot or plant into the garden and you should be harvesting your very own sweet potatoes next autumn! Twin Pack contains 12 plants (6 of each variety):
Murasaki - Enjoy a crop of sweet tender tubers in autumn, with the added bonus of delicious edible leaves. This superb variety is purple, and doesn’t lose its unusual colour when it’s cooked! James' says - 'Amazingly versatile and increasingly popular, the new varieties of sweet potato can be easily grown in the UK and produce a crop of sweet tender tubers with the added bonus of delicious edible leaves...'
Beauregard - Can produce good crops of medium sized tubers in British growing conditions. The tubers have that distinctive salmon-orange flesh with a sweet pronounced flavour packed full of vitamins and iron. Simply boil, steam, bake or mash for a delicious meal.
