More info

Ours were bred from French stock, imported by Guy Watson and his dad in a rowing boat from Brittany. If you leave globe artichokes to grow they will open into the purple flowers sold in dried flower shops. They're a great thing to grow where rabbits are a pest, as rabbits just won't touch them.
