Our Feedback

I ordered plants on the internet from four differnt companies, one of them being yours. Well done - your plants came first, were the best packaged and more importantly were in excellent condition. The others, some from big name brands were late and half dead. I know where I shall be ordering from again. Thank You

Artichoke Plants

Although there are three very separate and distinct types of artichokes that can be grown and eaten at home, here at Victoriana we offer globe artichoke plants for sale.

These artichokes are related to the thistle family, and each plant produces a head that has edible leaves and a 'heart' (stalk). Our artichokes are supplied as compost grown block plants, and we offer discounts on bulk orders. More...

Confusingly, the term 'Artichokes' actually encompasses three distinct plant types under one name - Jerusalem Artichokes (the infamous tubers!), Chinese Artichokes, and Globe Artichokes (tall, statuesque with edible flower head leaves and stalks). Our Artichokes listing is home to a selection of Globe Artichoke plants, and we have taken the time to select the varieties that offer the best edible bits!

Artichoke plants are not just favoured for their edible leaves and hearts (stalks) - they also make for fantastic ornamental additions to any vegetable patch or garden border thanks to their height and striking stature. In addition to their good looks, they are also a great addition for the wildlife gardener. Globe Artichoke plants are members of the thistle family, and if you can spare a few of your gorgeous green globes, and if you allow your Globe Artichokes to run to flower much like a flowering thistle they will not only offer a stunning display, but also prove extremely attractive to pollinating insects too.

Our Globe Artichokes are supplied as compost grown block plants, and can be planted out from late April onwards. These tall plants require at least three feet between plants in a sunny position with well draining soil. Our Globe Artichoke plants should last for between three and five years, after which time we recommend replanting.
