Order received safely today. Wonderful quality Jostaberry - I have previously purchased twice from Ken Muir and they have been miserable things which died immediately. Thankyou. The packaging contributed to my compost heap I have had great success with the climbing peas and look forward to sowing these next year. I recommend you to all my gardening friends Best wishes

This highly productive variety produces well rounded artichokes that are tinged purple. The firm heads have a good rounded shape and are perfect for using when immature or allowing to grow to full size.

The highly attractive plants grow quite large, and so look no less out of place in the ornamental garden as they do on the veg garden.

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).

  • Prefer a well drained but moisture retentive soil and a full sun position.
  • Plant out late April onwards.
  • Set plants 3 feet x 3 feet apart (90 cm x 90 cm).
  • Keep weed free.
  • Water well in dry spells.
  • Remove Autumn die back and protect the crowns from frost with straw or similar.
  • Plants are best replaced every 3 - 5 years; to produce young plants from your old simply remove offsets (side shoots) in the Spring.
Available from approximately April 2019
