It’s tu­ber time

NZ Gardener - Garden Diary 2018 - - Snip & Tuck -

Start har­vest­ing Jerusalem ar­ti­chokes. These earthy, tuber­ous roots are ready to eat when the plant dies down in late au­tumn or early win­ter. Don’t har­vest all at once as the tu­bers don’t keep well, so dig up what you need. Want to grow them? Buy tu­bers at a farmer’s mar­ket and plant them in a sunny spot. Plants reach 2m tall so plant at the back.
