Growing Sweet Potatoes

I know the potatoes should of been in already. Someone just gave me some sweet potatoes. Do you plant them just like the other potatoes, or is there a certain way of planting them.

Look it up on google. They aren't planted like regular potatoes, you have to let the 'eyes' grow into sprouts first---there are several good sites, but make sure that they refer to a growing area that is close to where you live. You could try your states Dept of Agriculture site. (05/29/2009)

Growing Sweet Potatoes

My understanding was that you soak them for a while first with half in the water and let them sprout roots first. (05/30/2009)
