I planted 8 artichokes seeds on March 20th, 2014. I used 3 year old seed packet (Artichoke - Green globes improved and purple Of Romagna, from Botanical Interests) I don't normal have any luck growing them. But I will keep trying. This are the last out of this packet. If they don't grow well, this year I'm going to try a new seed company.
They should come up on April 3rd.
They will be planted, they weekend of Mother's Day. They need to be planted in groups of 3, four feet apart.
What are you planting in your garden? Are you starting your seeds indoor?
