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!
