       The cultivation of tasty and productive purple artichoke


   At the end of winter seeding takes place in a protected seed with a soil substrate temperature of 18-240C. As soon as the young seedlings acquire 2-4 actual leaves are transplanted into larger pots and after 2-3 days they are placed outdoors for 10 days at a desired temperature of 7-100C to both harden and on the other hand existing this vernalization process to produce flower heads from the first year. At the end of this space, they are transplanted to the final positions.
   Artichoke fertilization begins before the plantation is planted in the field, incorporating 3-5kg per square chopped manure or compost, along with the addition of phosphorus and potassium fertilizer. When installing the seedlings, the first of three doses of nitrogen is superficially delivered, after one month  the second, while the third is done in the autumn.
