If you are in a region that has frost’s, it is recommended that you leave your yams in the ground to get “frosted” a few times. This will enhance the flavour. If your garden doesn’t become water logged over the winter, you can leave your crop in the ground for a few months.

Water regularly to maintain soil moisture.
