GROWING INSTRUCTIONS

Choose a sunny spot that has aerated, free draining soil. They don’t like the soil waterlogged and they do not like it dry. Add a generous amount of compost. They love our homemade compost. If you do not have good quality compost add what you have and also add well rotted manure like sheep manure.

We plant the tubers at the end of August on Banks Peninsula. They generally come up once the soil has warmed up to about 12ºC. Space them 40cm apart in a diamond pattern. Plant the tubers just below soil level and add a generous amount of organic mulch. Twigs, autumn leaves, straw, hay, grass clippings, some seaweed are all good choices. Here are more ideas for mulches in your garden.
