Paulo explains why he likes growing Globe Artichokes and what conditions they like to grow in. Paulo prefers to start them early inside or in a greenhouse from seed. This ensures healthy young plants to plant in summer. Paulo explains how he uses Globe Artichokes in his permaculture planting schemes and edible food forest schemes. In forest garden projects this perennial vegetable will provide architectural form and silvery aesthetics. These attributes also make it a great candidate for urban farming and city farming allotments. As well as the flower buds being edible the leaf stems can also be cooked and eaten.
