Not only a food provider but also a stunning architectural plant making it ideal for planting in the herbaceous border. Allow the 'heads' to flower for a stunning show!
Easy to grow and just as easy to prepare.
Just boil, remove the leaf scales one by one, dip them in melted butter and then suck out the juicy flesh from each scale.
Harvest: Following Autumn.
The ten plants looked small and weak but I planted them immediately in the greenhouse and am hoping four survive with TLC. I am surprised they are so fragile when I received them in mid June, a bit later than forecast. Sad to see the others wither within a day! I don't rate the quality and can't imagine getting more than half to grow to maturity...wasted money.
One plant was broken so there were only nine viable plants.
Please unpack the plants as soon as you receive them and sit them in a tray of shallow water if they appear to have dried out in transit.
