Hi All

Can anyone tell me where I could possibly buy some globe artichoke plants? I can't seem to locate them anywhere. I am based in Ballincollig, just west of Cork City.


Many thanks
Conor

I got some seedlings from the plant fair at Fota last year... I think the fair is on again in a couple of weeks (but go early! it gets very busy). Also, I got given a Sarah Raven seed kit as a present last year and grew them successfully - see if she has a website and get the seeds.
