What to do with Globe Artichoke over winter

If you’re growing globe artichokes for the first time this year, then you may be wondering what to do with the plants over the coming months. Luckily, it’s all very simple indeed!

Globe Artichokes are perennials so you can pretty much leave them to their own devices. However, you may prefer to cut back the old stems/foliage, just to keep things looking tidy. Leave any nice new growth. Also, if you’re in a particularly chilly part of the country it is a good idea to mulch around the base of new growth, just to protect it from hard frosts.

That’s it, there’s nothing more to do until next year when you start harvesting!
