Growing Calendar for Artichoke Duo Pack Plants
Delivery: Despatched from Mid May
Get this duo of five plants each of artichoke varieties Green Globe and Violet Globe, perfect for growing at home. Artichokes are great in an allotment situation or in pots, if you are limited to a paved garden or balcony. For this we recommend one plant per 30cm (12in) diameter pot. Treat your artichoke plants to rich, open compost like Marshalls Vegetable Grower’s Blend.
You receive 5 plants each of:
Artichoke Green Globe: architectural perennial giving you green-scaled flowers and large indented leaves on large 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) plants.
Artichoke Violet Globe: Purple flower heads appear in big numbers on tall 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) perennial plants. With extra immune system-boosting antioxidants and vitamins.
You receive your plants in May as healthy young plants, perfect for planting out. If late frosts in May are on the cards be prepared to protect your young plants with a fleece jacket.
