Artichoke Growing Tips and Advice

Did you know that the artichoke belongs to the sunflower family? Give your artichoke fertile, loamy soil with compost. Don't drench plants and make sure you grow them in a cool summer climate.


Organic vegetable fertilizers are a great way to improve the quality of your soil, which is the first step to successful gardening.

Planting Artichoke

You'll need at least 100 frost free days in your mild winter climate, but you can sow seeds about half an inch deep and about 60 inches apart directly about two weeks before the last frost for best results. Keep the soil moist. You can nip the artichoke from the stem when the buds are about the size of a baseball.

Days to Harvest: 100+ days.
Days to Germinate: 14-21
