Growing Oca's On

How to Plant Out Oca

Plant out your Oca when all chance of frosts have gone towards the end of May.  They do best in a site where you have been successful with potatoes in the past.  As they are not related to the humble potato you can use these a a crop rotational plant.

They develop into quite a bushy plant so give them plenty of room for good tuber production about 90cm(36") between plants.  Stems which lay on the earth will put down roots and will develop tubers also adding to your crop.  This can be encouraged by softening the soil in these areas and lightly covering the stems but leaving a good amount of foliage on top.

I like to cloche mine for a few days to get them well established after planting out but isn't essential, but protects them from an unexpected late frost should we get one.

Summer should be here!

Usually the risk of frost has passed by now, and with longer days there comes more sunshine and time to be in your allotment. If the weather is dry, then water your seed drills well before sowing any seeds – this way the young plants will develop a good root system.

Spring is starting and the new season is here

 Hopefully by now we are now standing on the threshold of Spring and the new gardening season. The days are beginning to lengthen and although it may not feel like it at times the temperatures are slowly increasing day by day. More importantly the longer days are the real trigger to new growth and you will find that with the help of a little protection you can really go for those early sowings
