I just saw your planting artichoke crowns video.  Trisha said the plant can grow to have a large spread, so why was she planting the crowns so close to the fence?  I can understand supporting the height of the plant with the fence, but won’t the fence hinder one side of its growth?  Can you trellis this kind of plant like an apple tree and just encourage lateral growth?

Gina, Sharp eyes! This was just a temporary planting for a demonstration. Artichokes can have a leaf spread of 6’ across.
