Organic Artichoke ‘Imperial Star’

Cynara Scolymus  – 10 Seeds.        Soil Association Organic Logo 

Artichoke ‘Imperial Star’ is a stunning globe artichoke that can be grown as either an annual or perennial. It is a real gourmet vegetable!

It produces up to 8 good sized buds per plant and is at home in the vegetable garden but can also be grown in a garden border due to its stunning, ornamental look! The bees love its incredible flowers when they open.

The artichoke seeds should be sown in trays or modules at around 18°c in late winter/early spring. Pot on when the seedlings are large enough to handle and plant out from early summer around 90cm apart. The buds should be harvested before they open when they are golf ball sized. Ideally the plants should be replaced every 3-4 years to maintain yields.
