Eggplant (also Aubergine) 20 Sep, John W Taylor (New Zealand - sub-tropical climate)
I left my eggplant in the ground over winter in Auckland. It really doesn't get that cold up here even in winter. The leaves dropped off and the stalks are still green in mid Sept. I trimmed the dead wood back. Will it come back?
Yam/Oka (also Oca) 18 Sep, ERIK (Australia - temperate climate)
I live in Hobart Tasmania, I saw the OCA at Hill Street Grocer and decided to try it i liked what i tried and went back and bought a couple of kilo 1 kilo to eat and the other to let chit and then i will plant it out. I know it isn't seed quality but it was grown in Tasmania so expect it will be ok to plant, I was unable to purchase OCA seed. Hope this helps. PS The OCA was only available at the West Hobart shop at the time and i haven't seen at the others.

No you need warm temps for it.
Celeriac 16 Sep, Michelle Tanner (New Zealand - temperate climate)
I grew wonderful celeriac in Kent,UK on limestone soil but here in the Waikato I have much less success. If they grow at all they are much smaller (golf to tennis ball rather than the small football sized ones from before). I am going to give it one last go this year, trying a variety of sizes and will feed and water like mad!
Celeriac 17 Sep, (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Buy a cheap pH tester. If you have heavy soil, lighten it up a bit with sand or compost. Start with with good rich soil and MAYBE a light fert when plants are 8 weeks old. DON
Celeriac 18 Sep, (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Don't over fert or water it. 3 good waterings a week is enough.
Celeriac 16 Sep, Liz (New Zealand - temperate climate)
The answer might be in your soil. It would be worth testing to see how acid it is . Most NZ soils tend towards acidity. Your limestone soil in Kent was more alkaline than acid.

Sage (also Common Sage) 13 Sep, Lionel (USA - Zone 6b climate)
Can I grow Sage herb in my out door garden which is in a Zone 6b region?? Is so, can I grow all the different types of Sage in this Zone region??
Sage (also Common Sage) 15 Sep, (USA - Zone 11a climate)
Yes and yes.
Sage (also Common Sage) 14 Sep, Anonymous (USA - Zone 6b climate)
Read the notes here about growing sage. Generally when they tell you to plant something it covers all varieties. Sometimes there are early mid and late season varieties of a plants, and sometimes varieties for summer and winter (like lettuce).
Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 13 Sep, Adrienne (New Zealand - cool/mountain climate)
Can you plant an whole kumera in a container and get a crop?
Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 14 Sep, Anonymous (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
Yes you can but you don't need a whole kumera, a piece of vine will do. A piece about 30-60cm long of the new vine growth. Place in a trench with the tip sticking out of the soil, water twice a day for the first 2-3 weeks.
Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 17 Sep, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Or depending on how big the spud is, cut it into several pieces and let them dry in the sun for a few days then plant them.

Cape Gooseberry (also Golden Berry, Inca Berry ) 11 Sep, Rodney Lewis (Australia - temperate climate)
Does the Inca berry tolerate lower temperatures throughout winter and frosts Being a perennial will it continue to grow and produce through the colder months
Cape Gooseberry (also Golden Berry, Inca Berry ) 14 Sep, Anonymous (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
If you can grow in a cool/mountain climate then it will tolerate winter temps. A perennial will generally have a growing time ,a fruiting time and a quiet time (winter).
