The sharp spines have also been reduced which has really helped improve this variety. The tasty hearts are a delicacy when pickled and even the base of the leaves can also be eaten. It is a perennial vegetable and makes for a wonderful addition to a veg garden or allotment. They even attract the bees as well so perfect in a cottage garden also.

Grow globe artichoke plants in rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun with protection from strong winds. Direct sow globe artichoke seed outdoors from March to April when the soil has warmed up. Globe artichoke grown outdoors will usually flower the year after planting.
Cover young globe artichoke plants with fleece when required to protect them from frosts. When growing globe artichokes, provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. Throughout summer, water globe artichokes regularly, particularly during dry periods. Harvest globe artichokes from July, before the scales open, while the buds are plump. Globe artichokes will produce good crops for several seasons but are best replaced after 3 years to maintain vigour and crop yields.
