This company is in the Highlands.......It is widely considered that sweetpotato cannot be grown in the UK, with this in mind we decided to develop our nursery in the Scottish highlands to prove what could be achieved. If sweetpotato can be grown here they will grow in the rest of the UK.

I'm up this neck of the woods too so I think I might try them.
