Artichoke Green Globe Seed 

A selected stock, Artichoke Green Globe is a  yielding with well-formed globes . Sow in January and plant out in the spring. 

Growing Info  Sow seed in March and April 13mm (0.5in) deep in a seedbed, sowing two or three seeds per station, with 25-30cm (10-12in) in and between the rows. Thin to leave the strongest seedling.
Alternatively sow seeds in 7.5cm (3in) pots of good compost. Seed-raised plants tend to be variable and spiny, but when good plants occur, suckers (shoots arising from a plantís root system) can be taken.
Some cultivars are maintained by suckers and, although rather costly, are generally superior to seed-raised plants.
Plants can also be propagated from rooted suckers, bought or taken from established plants from March-April. They should be healthy, 20-30cm (8-12in) long with at least two 

Hints and Tips Always pick young before they seed

Quantity 20 seeds, usually more.
