Jerusalem Artichoke Update

Despite having left our Jerusalem Artichokes to become pot bound for many months I am very pleased to be able to report that a month or so after planting them out they are flourishing in their new home. Having been treated so badly early in the season, the excellent growth they have shown proves they really are easy to grow and will do well in the shadiest part of the garden. If you are looking for something that requires little work and will fill a space in a shady spot I would recommend that you give these plants a go. 


  1. Wow - they're so tall! Think I will plant some as a hedge next year - do you suppose you can spare me a few pieces to root?

  2. Hi Rowena

    It is recommended that you dig them up and thin them out each year so yes there will some spare.
