Champlain Valley Sweet Potato Plant Sale

Red Wagon Plants, 2408 Shelburne Falls Road
Hinesburg, VT

$6/pot (3 rooted slips) - Gardener’s half-dozen: Buy 6 pots, get one free!

Sweet potatoes are ideal for Champlain Valley gardeners with sandy, silty, or loamy soil. Each fully-rooted organic slip can produce up to five pounds of delicious Orleans sweet potatoes. Since 2004, the Vermont Community Garden Network has introduced thousands of area gardeners to the enjoyable experience of growing sweet potatoes in Vermont!

Our plants are sold at just the right time for planting when the ground is warm and night temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees.  With the popularity of sweet potatoes increasing each year, and to accommodate more customers, we began a new partnership with Red Wagon Plants in 2009 and moved our annual sale to the RWP greenhouses in Hinesburg.  Thanks to the generosity of Julie Rubaud and staff, 100% of proceeds from the Sweet Potato Slip Sale supports our food- and garden-based education programs.
