I planted this Artichoke earlier in the year as part of my Front garden's Food, Fruits and Herbs exhibition not expecting it to flower this year. So I allowed the tomatoes to almost squash it out. Therefore I did not noticed it flowering until I started to pick the tomatoes. It is a small Globe Artichoke compared to the ones I buy in the shops, but it will more tasty I am sure. I am now looking forward to many more next year as I am repeating the exhibition next year as it was so successful according to my visitors.
