Not too difficult to grow
Sow seed lcm deep in pots and transplant or plant rooted offsets 5cm deep. Space plants 90cm apart. Choose fertile soil on a sunny sheltered site.
Water in prolonged dry weather and mulch to conserve moisture. Protect roots in winter with straw. Replace plants every 3 years for best results.
Cut ‘plump’ flower heads with short stems when the scales are still soft, green and tight. Side shoots may produce a smaller second crop.
