  • Planting Instructions

    The artichoke is an edible thistle flower bud which is eaten before it opens. If we wait until full maturity, it blooms a beautiful purple thistle. But first lets learn how to grow this plant and harvest before it gets to that stage.

    Artichokes are tender perennials that grow from 3-4 feet tall and 6 feet across. Carefully decide where you would like to plant your artichokes, as this will be considered your “perennial garden” that you will not be tilling up each year like you do for your annuals. A nice companion plant to put with your artichokes is asparagus, as these are perennials as well and will come back for you year after year.

    Artichokes grow best where there are mild winters and long, frost-free, moist summers. They will need at least 100 frost-free growing days.

    Amend your soil with organic compost and keep it evenly moist, allowing soil to dry between watering. Sow seeds ½” deep and thin to 6’ apart. Where winters are cold, cut plants back to 10” and cover with a box or basket, mulching with straw or leaves to help maintain an even soil temperature. Artichokes bear best the 2nd year and should be started from new plants every 3-4 years.

    Harvest artichokes during the 2nd year, cut buds about the size of an apple before they open. Cut stems about 1 ½” below the bud.

Seeds germinating

Planted these seeds about two weeks ago and I swear more plants have sprouted than seeds planted! Very happy seedlings that will need transplanting in the next few days.

Artichoke Seeds - Green Globe 5.0

Review By Hugh T Yester


I bought a packet of seed and planted spring of 2012. You should space seeds approx. 6ft. apart in an area of your garden where they can grow undisturbed for 5 years. We did not have a harvest in 2012, but in April 2013 the crop arrived. The artichoke plants produce an abundance of chokes approx. 2 1/2 in. wide and 3 1/2 tall and they are delicious. We live in north central Alabama.
