Review:

I love artichokes and these really produce for me. I have them growing as ornamentals throughout my yard. After I've eaten them to the point of being sick of them I let them flower. They are unbelievably beautiful. My neighbors have yet to figure out what the beautiful flowers I grow are. I find them easy to propagate. I just dig 'em separate 'em and replant them in the early fall or in the spring. Here fall is better cause it gives them a chance to root well and bloom in the spring. I fertilize with grass clippings. My worst problem is slugs, they eat out the stalks so I use lots of slug bait. Other than that I have no problems. I'd like to get enough to be able to freeze them.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
