    Default Jerusalem Artichokes

    Hi All,
    We got our plot in January and after an awful lot of hard work we are at the planting stage. I've put some Jerusalem Artichokes in because I just love them, but I'm not sure how long it shoud be before they appear. Can anyone give me any clues?

    Many thanks,
    Cath

    Mine are shooting now. I don't know where you are in the country? Can you put your location (roughly) in your profile?

    HI,
    Thanks for the replies. I'm in Cheshire where it is wet and we've had a fair bit of snow this year. The artichokes went in three weeks ago, so am I being a bit impatient? I thought they would come up really quickly as I am aware they are 'vigorous' plants.

    Thanks again,
    Cath

    You're round the corner- literally- from me !!
    My JA's are still below the ground!
    We are off on hols today, but I expect they'll be up when we get back.

    Ooohhh.... where is your plot??? We are in Alderley on Chorley Hall Lane. We took over a real mess of a plot in January. I'm relieved your JAs are the same as mine. I was thinking the OH had sabbotaged them because he doesn't like them.

    Have a lovely holiday, and thanks for the reply.

    Cath, make sure that whereever you've planted them they'll be restricted - don't know if you know but they're like a rampant weed, so no problems with year on year growth, all you have to do is leave a few in the ground.
