I don’t tend to post many offers here on the blog these days, unless they’re pretty spectacular (I have a Facebook group for offers and competitions, and I post some to Twitter as well).
For a short time Suttons are offering their artichoke plants collection of 6 potted plants (3 green 3 purple) for £19.99 (+P&P) if you follow this link and use the the magic word – CHOKE16. This collection is normally £59.94, so if my maths is correct that’s a whopping 66% saving (you save nearly £40).
Globe artichokes are a classic perennial vegetable, with a bit of a swank factor because they’re so expensive to buy. They are tall plants, perfect for adding to the back of a perennial border as an ‘edimental’ (edible ornamental) or a spot in the kitchen garden/allotment. Artichokes are famed for the savoury, sweet taste of their thick-fleshed, nutty-tasting hearts. Apparently they’re high in antioxidants, vitamin C and fibre. And once your plants are established you can expect them to continue cropping for 15 years!
Not only that, but these perennial thistles also have spectacular flowers that bees love.
So if you’ve been pondering adding these wonderful perennial vegetables to your plot, now is the time to take the plunge. The offer is valid until midnight on 9th October 2016. Remember… click through the link and use the offer code CHOKE16 to get this special price.
