Taro Pacific

To keep your rootstock through the Winter, in May re-plant into Styrene Boxes with plenty of mulch, plant out again in Sept into position. They will be months more advanced for cropping and have minimul losses. Leaves for Lu are also available all year. | Jim Beaton - Childers, QLD 31-Dec-2005
