Globe Artichoke 'Purple Globe' is a resplendent perennial that produces a good crop of tasty, purple, globe-shaped heads in late summer. Spectacular silvery foliage makes this attractive plant just as good in a flower border as it is in the kitchen garden. Wherever you grow it, you can be sure that any flower heads left unharvested will attract bees from far and wide! Globe Artichokes will enjoy a permanent position in the garden, returning year after year. 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. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted garden compost to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Plant globe artichokes at a distance of 75cm (30”) apart. Water the plants in well after planting.
More Info
Cover young globe artichoke plants with fleece to protect them from late 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.
