The 4 Yacon plants were put out in April and as there had been some frost it was time to dig them up. Started digging some distance away so as not to damage anything.
Have put them in the conservatory for a couple of weeks.

There are some tiny holes in a couple of the tubers so will have a look to see what’s been boring in. Could be wireworm apparently.
