Description

We must admit that for the space globe artichokes take up they are hardy high yielders, but their architectural quality makes them virtually dual purpose.

So why not grow them in the herbaceous border?

Just boil, remove the leaf scales one by one, dip them in melted butter and then suck out the juicy flesh from each scale. Beautiful and delicious!

How to Guide

Sowing Indoors

Almost fill a seed tray with moist seed compost. Sow seeds thinly over the surface, and lightly cover them with a little more compost. Place in warmth 10-15C (50-60F), and keep moist.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings individually to 8cm (3in) pots of potting compost. Gradually accustom them to conditions outside for 2-3 weeks before planting out to their cropping positions 90cm (36in) apart from late spring onwards.

Sowing Outdoors

Sow seeds thinly in a shallow, short, pre-watered row. Lightly cover them with a little soil. Keep soil moist until seedlings are established, then thin to 2cm (1in) apart.

Row Spacing

20cm

Transplanting

When the seedlings are growing strongly, transplant them to their cropping positions from mid to late summer, allowing 90cm (36in) each way between plants.
