It's our first year and I'm v unsure to how you know they are ready. I read Oct/Nov but do they die back like potatoes or what?

I wanted to grow sweet potatoes, but couldn't find any in the shops sad. IIRC they did them on Gardeners World last year, it might still be on their website.

I have had them in the ground all bloody year and I also have no idea if they're ready!! I may have a go at one plant and see. I don't think I'll grow them again - in a small garden, it's too much real estate occupied for probably a small crop.

I have some. I bought them from Homebase. I have no idea when they are ready- I think it's when they start to die back.
