January in the Mid-South garden - Page 2 Empty Invasive

Post  ander217 1/15/2011, 7:47 am

I wanted to grow some soon after I married, but my grandmother also cautioned me against it. She had tried them years before and said, "They spread all over creation!" I think they should be okay grown in a SFG as long as one is careful to harvest all of the tubers.

Hubby was thinking about planting some in the pasture for the little oinkers, but I'm worried about the invasion factor and trying to talk him out of it.

They can be hard to eliminate when desired. They keep coming back because if you miss harvesting the smallest tubers, they will grow come springtime. Just like potatoes.

Planting them in a sfg box will contain them. No box bottom necessary.

According to a wonderful show called The Edible Garden, cooking them with Winter Savory negates the gassy effects. I don't think Winter Savory is very popular here, at least I've never seen it, although I've seen Summer Savory and grew some last year. It was so delicious!
