Wonder if anyone has got a word of advice?  Have been wanting to get some  J Artichokes in this autumn, but not been able to get hold of any locally.  So have bought some from a greengrocer - they're a little sad, and soft, but am going to plant them anyway.  Question:  Am I wasting my time?

Put them in damp soil right away & they'll soon freshen up.  Even a tub of spent compost until you can get them planted.

Might be worth cooking one or two to make sure you like that variety.

Hi Tallulah,

I was given some tubers by a friend at work which were delivered in her veggie box a couple of years ago.  They have filled a corner of my plot and look quite spectacular whilst in flower.  I do have a problem getting my lot to eat them though.

Anytime between now and, say, mid April

Not necessarily, something eats them, who also moves and replants half gnawed to death tubers, somewhere more suitable. :lol:
