Jerusalem Artichokes are such a superb vegetable both in ease of growing, taste and yield that I can’t believe that they are not more widely grown. I often say that if you fail to grow Jerusalem artichokes you may as well give up gardening for life and hang up your spade!
In fact, they are the only vegetable that could survive without a gardener’s care while most others would become extinct very soon. So be careful where you plant them – ideally at the back of the garden as they grow quite quickly and may shade the crops behind. There is also no need to use a crop rotation, simply harvest them in winter and replant in the same bed again in early spring.
All you need to do is to plant the tubers from late February until early April into good soil about 10cm deep and 30cm apart and then earth up the stems as they grow. From late October and right through the winter you can get lots of delicious tubers.
We offer a mix of 4 varieties (1 tuber of each) of different shapes and sizes.
