Supplied as compost block grown plants.SOLD OUT UNTIL LATE MAY 2016
This reliable old heritage variety produces fine quality globes that can be harvested as baby artichokes or left to mature to full size.
The globes are of good size and are fairly firm.
Perennial in habit, these are a stunning architectural plant making them ideal for planting in the herbaceous border, and if you allow one or two globes to flower you will be in for a stunning show that the bees will love!
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects if allowed to 'go over' and flower (so if you have room leave any plants in that have gone too far rather than pulling them out straight away).
