Hi there, I have my yams in a bath tub, is there anything else I can plant in there with them?

You might be able to, but I'M a big believer that each crop has it's own space to grow. If you want to produce great yams why would you plant something else next to them to grab some of the fert, water etc. Each crop requires a minimum spacing between plants and between rows to produce a good. crop. Go and buy another bath tub, dig some ground up etc.
