New Page 1
What would the antipasto plate be without the hearts of globe artichokes? This magnificent vegetable with arching silver leaves makes quite a garden statement. Allow about 3 plants per person and replace your plants every third to fourth year
If the buds are left to develop they produce brilliant lilac-blue flowers that can be dried for flower arrangements or enjoyed in the border.
Love frosty, cool temperate regions for growing conditions.
