Hello can I grow sweet potatoes in Clyde Central Otago?

We have grown them successfully in Balclutha 2021/22 2022/23. This years crop 2023/24 Was slow getting going but perked up in December. The tops havn't grown as much as the previous 2 years but we are hopeful of getting a worth while crop when we dig them up. I would say just have a go. Because we have a shorter season it is tempting to put them in early like 1/11 but we think it is better to wait until the ground has warmed up. cheers Lex
