Growing Sweet Potatoes in Tasmania
We don't recommend growing Sweet Potatoes in Tasmania
These nutritious veggies thrive in the tropics and need a long, warm growing season to produce a crop. Sweet potatoes are not a good choice for Tasmanian gardens, because the weather is too cool and the summer too short.
