Jerusalem artichoke Tubers (3)


    Mainly grown for its below-ground tubers that can be cooked or eaten raw

    3 Tubers

    Eventual Height – 2-3m

    Eventual Spread – 1m+

    This product is supplied as 3 tubers

    Plant into well-prepared soil, planting at a depth of 10-15cm (4-6in) with tubers spaced 30cm (12in) apart. If you have an allotment or are particularly fond of Jerusalem artichokes, space rows 1.5m (5ft) apart.

    As these plants do grow tall, they can make an effective screen, but may need some support in very exposed and windy sites. A cage made from stout stakes and strong twine will suffice. When foliage starts to turn yellow in autumn, prune to leave 8cm (3in) stumps above ground level. Place the prunings over plants to keep the soil warm and aid lifting of tubers in frosty weather.
