Storing Jerusalem Artichokes
We have a problem with storing Jerusalem Artichoke tubers over the winter. They are stored indoors on trays of sand in a single layer but are going mouldy. Is it better to leave them in the ground over winter?

Storage problems could arise if it's not cold enough, not clean enough or too moist. Tubers could have been infested with a disease which develops fully in storage (are the ones in the soil still okay?). Could try to leave them in, but they may resprout too soon. Holger
