Hello all, just a brief touching base and shameless advertisement!!
I wanted to order some artichoke plants, so I got them from Tasteful Garden! I also got Horseradish as well. I wanted to show the progress of my lovely delushious plants!!
Okay, so I love my Artichokes! A bit advice when growing them in the SouthEast section of the country. First, slugs love them, so sprinkle a little red pepper flakes around them to prevent this glutenous behaviour. Make sure you have chosen a spot where they can get about 4 feet tall and several feet wide, like an overgrown zucchinni plant. Then plant at least 1 plant per consumer, as I know I can eat lots!! When fall rolls around, dig up your plant and store it in some peat moss in your garage or basement, and pull out and plant next year. This should give you 5 years of crops from this one plant! Amazing eh?
