  1. 1

    Plant in early spring when ground is workable after the last frost. Choose a location that gets full sun for six hours or more during the day.

  2. 2

    Dig holes that are 2 inches deep and about 6-8 inches apart. Mix in the potting soil.

  3. 3

    Place the tuber root claws down into the hole. Cover with the soil, mounding slightly.

  4. 4

    Water well to moisten the soil. Keep watered daily while plants are being established. Once the plants are growing, let the soil dry out in between watering.

Tips and warnings

  • A week to 10 days before planting, manure or compost can be worked into the soil.
