Have read that shop brought ones are treated so may not grow, any thoughts?

I soaked mine in a bucket of water overnight before propping it up in its water container - don't know whether that helped because I don't know whether the tuber had been treated in the first place...  :unsure:

Easy to grow your own slips from a supermarket sweet potato tuber - there have been several lengthy threads on the subject over the years if you do a search for them; this is one of the shorter ones:  ::)

Looking to buy sweet potatoes and research says they have to be brought as slips.

Have also come across them as seeds.

Can the be grown from seeds in UK?

Finding postage at 5 to much, anybody know if garden centres sell them?

Golden Gourmet certainly do form clumps, and are a very reliable variety, at least in my local conditions.

The warm, dry conditions at harvesting time this year made it much easier to dry them quickly and completely for storing, and I've lost far fewer so far than in previous years.  :)
