How to Grow & Harvest Artichoke (source)

Artichokes have a preference for a long, frost-free season. They do not grow well when there is heavy frost or snow. The temperature should not be under 55°F at night. For best results, plant them on the average date of last frost for your area.


How to Grow Artichoke

Artichokes need rich, well-drained soil that will hold moisture. They also need as much sun as possible. 8 hours of sunlight is ideal.

When to grow:

Start Artichokes indoors 7-8 weeks before last frost. Sow seeds ¼ inch deep. Space plants approximately 2-4 feet apart. You can also sow directly into the ground once the threat of frost is over.


How to Harvest
:

The flowering buds will develop during the summer months and will reach full maturity during fall. 

Harvest when the buds have started to flower. Pick them and enjoy!
