Not too difficult to grow
Plant 5cm long tubers 15cm deep, pointing upwards. Space 30cm apart and 90cm between rows. Choose fertile soil on a sunny site.
When 30cm tall, ‘earth-up’ by pulling soil to cover 10cm of stem. Stake if needed. Remove flowers for a bigger crop and cut stems to 15cm in autumn.
Remove all tubers by spring to stop re-growth.
