If Jerusalem artichokes aren't lifted completely they quickly become an invasive weed, so it is worth installing a barrier around the roots when planting; many gardeners have a separate bed for artichokes, to limit their spread. If grown in the same bed every year, add extra organic matter at the end of each season to prevent the crop degrading

    A much under-rated vegetable which has edible tubers that have a potato-like texture and are delicious. Originally from North America, Jerusalem artichoke is a member of the daisy family and is closely related to the sunflower. Plant the tubers as soon as possible 30-40cm apart in soil that has had added organic matter at a depth of approx 10-15cm deep.The plants make an excellent screen or windbreak and the tubers are ready to harvest from between October and early spring.

  • Garden care: Dig added organic matter into the soil and plant the tubers 30-40cm apart. Earth-up the base of the stems when the plants are about 30cm high. Water well when the weather is dry. During the summer months remove any flower buds as they form and feed occassionally with liquid fertiliser.

      Comments about Jerusalem artichoke Fuseau:

      The instructions could have been clearer especially with regard to harvesting. We had no flowers but it didnt seem to affect the crop. We probably dug them up too soon but that was because we needed better instructions. On google is said to keep the plants well contained or you would never get rid of them!!! but i don't recall reading that anywhere from crocus....
