I tried growing them from old seeds.  None germinated.  So i bought some small seedlings and some new seeds.  Out of 8 new seeds planted, only 1 germinated.  Imperial star.  Any info on germinating the seeds.

I do mine in Jiffy Pellets on a heating pad. I didn't pay much attention before, but I have 8 of them going right now, so I can report accurately this time. It's been 7 days. No sprouts, yet, but I didn't expect anything yet. I'll post my progress, here.

This pic is of the 4 from my last planting. These were planted from seed on 11/1/19. I planted 8 seeds and got these 4.

CN,

How deep are those artichoke boxes?  Did you fill them with Mel's Mix?

I have a survivor in a pot in the garage that will need a larger home this year, plus a couple of seedlings I started several weeks ago.

4 sprouts this morning. The seeds are for 2020, Purple of Romagna, from Baker Creek, but already gone from their catalog. idk These are used Jiffy Pellets, btw.

The boxes are 2x2 with the bottoms removed. MM is too spendy for me, so I use Mel's "humanitarian" mix, which means I use whatever I have. In this case it's chicken coop compost, which is a combination of chicken poop, seeds, hay, and kitchen scraps; rabbit poop and bedding; leaves; and a small amount of potting mix, just around the individual plants.

I think it's a bust.  Did manage to eat 2 that were about 3". I'm going to let one open to a flower and then it's gone.

Sanderson,

The one I overwintered in the garage is alive and kicking.  I'm considering moving it into a larger pot and adding some more MM.  Still, I have to be mindful that I can move that pot in the fall.
