In complete contrast to last weeks dainty Linaria I’m featuring one of the larger single plants on the plot.
It is the globe artichoke that is growing next to the log pile and stands around four foot high. There are two heads on it, both of which I’m letting flower then seed. It’s an impressive looking plant and this head is about the size of a tennis ball, and loved by insects including the bee that’s visible.
Daffy, and others, might be interested to know that, apparently, it is a plant that rabbits do not eat!
