Artichoke Green Globe 10 Seeds

Cynara scolymus


The Globe Artichoke is an herbaceous perennial grown for its flower head or flower bud. It is a coarse, thistle like plant of the Sunflower Family, native to the Mediterranean region, and common in wild form in Southern Europe and Northern Africa.

Super thistles growing to 1.2-1.3m high with a spread of 1.2x1.2m . Very pretty, can be part of a herbacious border.

Harvest from second year. Artichokes grow particularly well in sandy soil. Can be propagated by suckers or offsets. In temperate/warm areas a well fertilised plant will live for about five years and throw up suckers each year. Artichokes aren't hardy enough to overwinter in areas with very cold winters. In cold areas choose a hardy variety from a local supplier and grow it as an annual, with 10 days' exposure to cool daytime temperatures during spring. Transplant only when all danger of frost is past in your area. Aphids and earwigs can be a nuisance.
