Warm

The young artichokes are now ready for the winter, they are hardy for us, but his cover will help them to get moving earlier in the season than if they do not have winter protection. We will have stronger plants in spring for on suffering a hard winter. I remember going with Christopher to Brittany on Easter and seeing very large fields of artichokes, the sad thing was that they where not ready because if they had been we would have gone in and picked our own. It is not such a problem for the older plants, they will be split in the spring.
