Morning Jennifer :) I've sent you a Friend Request - makes it easier to talk via Personal Message (PM). Glad you are finding some info on the site to help you. My pawpaws get black spot every winter. Yes, a good feed helps. They like Epsom Salts for the magnesium - a suggestion from my Gran decades ago. I just cut off the affected leaves and it all comes good again in the warm weather. If you would like some cuttings from other types of sweet potato we can arrange for some to be posted. Just say the word.
