Today’s Common Gardening Question: How Much Light do sweet potatoes need?

The Answer: Sweet potatoes are sun-loving plants that need at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. They can tolerate some shade, but too much can affect their growth and yield. If you have a shady spot in your garden, you might want to choose another crop or use containers to move your sweet potatoes around.
