Growing sweet potatoes

I'd like to grow some sweet potatos....can they be grown in a raised
bed (in Provo Utah)? Any ideas where to find sweet potato seed in Utah

Sweet potatoes need a longer warm growing season than we have in Northern Utah, so you shouldn't expect much.

If you take sweet potatoes from lyour produce section and cut out the eyes, then plant those in your greenhouse or window sill in March (or April, since March is past), you should be able to improve your chances for a crop by planting healthy seedlings by the end of May when it's warm enough to put them out in the garden.
