Vine growing requirements:
- Apply one inch of water retention mulch around all of the plants in the container. The mulch will help retain moisture and will deter weed growth.
- Set your garden nozzle to mist. Hydrate the sweet potato vine and feature plants in the morning and mid to late afternoon if the weather is hot and the soil is dry to the touch.
- Water plants in afternoon four hours before the sun sets.
- Move sweet potato vine to a part sun area during the hottest time of the day. This will prevent the leaves from wilting. Morning sun or late afternoon sun is agreeable to the sweet potato vine.
I planted sweet potato vine in an antique baby bed. This design was for a client of mine. The bed was a feature garden in her yard. I planted red dahlias in the center of the bed and the lime green sweet potato vine grew along the edges. This bed container needed to be misted and watered daily as all plants were grown in compost and moss planter box that was 8 inches deep. I also planted the vine in the basket of an antique bike. These antique container gardens made my client's yard more inviting. Her guests were drawn to unique gardens.
