How to Grow
Globe Artichoke is a perennial growing to 1.5 metres high and 1.5m wide. It is best sown into punnets during early Autumn or small pots then transplanted into the garden during Autumn/Winter. They are a heavy feeder and require very fertile soil. The plants can be a little slow at first but be patient with them, once the root system is well established, they will grow very quickly. Artichoke heads will begin to form during November-December for harvest. They are a perennial that will go semi-dormant in temperate zones and fully dormant in cold regions. During dormancy, the crown can be transplanted to a new location or divided into multiple plants.
Note: If you are in a cold region, it is best to start them during Spring.
