Answer: Hi,

Sweet Potato tubers are best sourced from stores/online nurseries in early spring. The plants grow well in tropical climates all year round but if you live in Melbourne, plant the tubers in early spring to ensure the plants receive plenty of sunshine to thrive and bear fruit. Prepare the soil beforehand by incorporating Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Plant Fertiliser
and feed your plants fortnightly with Yates Thrive Flower and Fruit Soluble Plant Food as these products will help improve your crop.

Happy gardening!

Kind regards, Kay.
