Question of the Week

Mike: I went to THE website (that’s what I call your site) and was shocked; for the first time, your alphabetical index failed me. You have no information on artichokes! From the little I could find elsewhere on the web, it seems like it’s possible to raise artichokes down here in the South, but there was conflicting information on what varieties would be best to try; and not a lot of info at all on how to care for the plants. Do you have any advice/expertise to share? I’m sick of paying $3-4 to get a ‘choke fix’! Thanks! Get the answer »
