Growing Potato

31 Oct 21 Kevin Weaver (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I live on the mid north coast of Nsw . I planted potatoes in my vegetable garden at the beginning of October, not realizing they are best grown in cooler months, the are currently looking and growing really well i have just mounded them for the first time. Is there any chance they will grow to harvest, or am i wasting my time. Thanks kev

In sub tropical you can grow an Autumn and a Spring crop. The guide above says plant Aug to Oct. They also plant about May in Bundy - sub tropical.
