Artichokes are an excellent permanent cover for awkward areas such as hillsides, shady areas, heavy soils and where annual spring cultivation is a problem.
Artichokes are sown as tubers (like potatoes) and therefore will need to be planted in ridges, and ideally maintained every year.
Growing up to 2 metres, they make a dense cover, which has a tendency to lodge in December, so if the ridges are not maintained you lose your cover.
Sow at 500kg/acre
