  4. Water regularly and consistently, providing even moisture to avoid fluctuations affecting the growth and quality of the artichoke.
  5. Apply a balanced, organic fertiliser as the plants mature.

What are Artichoke Seeds?

Artichoke Seeds are the seeds used to grow artichoke plants, which produce the edible flower buds commonly known as artichokes. Our Artichoke Seeds are sourced from Pleasance Herb Seeds, a certified organic seed producer located in New South Wales.

How do I plant Artichoke Seeds?

To plant Artichoke Seeds, select a sunny location with well-draining soil. Sow the seeds about 1cm deep and 60cm apart, and water them well. The seeds will germinate in about 10-14 days, and the plants will mature to produce artichokes in 4-6 months.

What are the benefits of growing artichokes from seeds?

Growing artichokes from seeds allows you to enjoy fresh, pesticide-free produce straight from your garden. It's also a cost-effective alternative to purchasing established plants or artichoke buds. Additionally, planting artichokes from seeds allows you to control the overall quality of the plants and watch them progress through their entire growth cycle.

What type of soil do Artichoke Seeds need to grow?

Artichoke Seeds prefer well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. They grow best in soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. Be sure to prepare the soil by adding compost or aged manure to improve its fertility and structure.

How do I care for my artichoke plants once they have sprouted?

Once your Artichoke Seeds have germinated, ensure the plants receive adequate water, generally about 1 inch per week. Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Apply a layer of organic mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and prevent weed growth. Artichoke plants may also benefit from a balanced organic fertiliser applied mid-season.

When is the best time to harvest artichokes?

Artichoke buds are ready to harvest once they have reached their full size and are still tightly closed. If buds start to open and the bracts become more spaced out, they may become too tough and fibrous to eat. Generally, it is best to harvest artichokes when the central bud is about 3-4 inches in diameter.

Can I grow artichokes in pots?

Yes, artichokes can be grown in large pots or containers. Ensure the pot has good drainage and is at least 60cm in diameter to accommodate the plant's extensive root system. Fill the pot with a high-quality potting mix and provide the same care as you would for artichokes grown in the ground.
