Artichoke - Green Globe

This gourmet treat is very popular in the Mediterranean. Eat the fleshy base of the 'scales' dipped in butter and saute the hearts as a delicious appetiser. The flowers and foliage make very ornamental plants.

Sow indoors from February to March, 0.5cm deep in a tray of seed compost. Water well and maintain a temperature of 15-20°C. Keep moist. Transplant, 5cm apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions avoiding frosts, before planting out, from May to June, 90cm apart. Or outdoors, sow thinly, from March to April where they are to crop, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, rich, deeply-dug soil, which has already been watered. Allow 90cm between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin plants to 90cm apart. Plants should crop for 4-5 years. Harvest from July to October.
