Sweet Potatoes grow from plants. Not seeds. March is a great time of year to start & later get them in ground as they do not like cold. Be sure to start w-organic sweet potatoes bc groc store ones are treated w-anti-sprouting chemicals. Pull sprouts at about 4-5" long & put them all in another jar of water. The potato will continue sprouting. Keep new sprout bunches in water until roots are established. Plant after you pull out your peas, in 10" mounds of warm soil on JULY 4. (Eastern PA).
