Globe artichoke require a moist but well-drained soil, in a sunny but sheltered position. Remove any weeds and add a good compost, manure or fertilizer prior to planting. Mark out a row and plant the roots 15cm/6" deep and 90cm/36" apart. Water after planting and keep the soil moist during the growing season. Staking may be necessary as plants become top-heavy. When harvesting, cut the flower heads with a few centimetres of the stem attached. Cut back the stems in autumn and protect over winter with a thick mulch.
