Patrick's survival guide
Need to know what 5-star restaurants are in your vicinity at all times? Sounds like you need a friend like Patrick… Plantsome’s very own walking Yelp guide. No matter how exquisitely Patrick dines, he won’t snub a steaming hot side of fries, nor a street ‘dog. The more food, the better. The only thing he won’t tolerate is a picky eater—unless, of course, you’re eating what HE picks.
What type of care your plant needs

What makes Patrick so special
The Ipomoea Batatas, otherwise known as the sweet potato vine, is a vining outdoor plant that comes in a variety of stunning colours. The perfect ground cover, basket filler, or focal point, it does best in full sun and will produce richly coloured leaves. The sweet potato vine prefers moist, well-draining soil, but otherwise is a fairly easy care plant. Pruning and fertilizing can be done on an as-needed basis. The Sweet Potato Makatea produces potatoes with orange skin and white flesh, and is a delicious edible plant! When harvesting, only brush off the dirt before storing. Wash the potatoes before consuming.
