Description
Globe Artichoke 'Green Globe Improved' bears larger, heavier, and more consistent quality globe-shaped heads. The characteristic sharp spines have been greatly reduced in this improved variety. The astonishingly tasty hearts make a supreme delicacy when pickled, and the base of the leaves can be eaten too. This majestic perennial vegetable makes an attractive addition to any vegetable plot. It is ideal for the flower garden too, attracting bees to its thistle like flowers when left unharvested. Height: 180cm (71"). Spread: 75cm (30").

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
