Hi everyone, i hava a globe artichoke that i'm growing mainly for its foliage, cutting the flower heads as they emerge. However, its getting a bit big and needs moving - anyone got any advice on moving it?



Hi Howee cut down the foliage - and earth up the crowns and cover them lightly with bark or newspaper, make sure there is enough air circulation so that they wont rot. Remove the covering in early spring when the risk of frost is past. I know you asked about moving but if you cut down every year it will not get so big.
