Growing Calendar for British Original Artichoke
Delivery: Early March to Late April
Original Jerusalem Artichoke are knobbly and irregular in shape with pale purply-brown skin. Scrub and boil or steam until tender, then peel.
Jerusalem Artichokes belong to the Sunflower family and can be grown as an informal summer screen, before harvesting the hardy roots in the winter.
Also called: sunroot, sunchoke, earth apple or topinambour.
Plant 4in/10cm deep and 12in/30cm apart. Lift as required during the winter.
About a third of the bulbs had mould on and some were rotted due to being shipped in a plastic bag. I had enough to fill my container but felt a lot had been wasted. Hopefully the ones which survived will make it through the soil. I've bought these before from another supplier where they were shipped in a string bag within a box and they travelled well. Very tasty too.
Planted and starting to appear above ground
Artichokes looked good, very pleased with them
Tomatoes taste just lovely picked fresh from the vine, tomatoes ripened by the sun have a unique flavour and sweetness making them great to add to salad, snack boxes or reduced to make delicious sauces.
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.
