Minos, I think that it is brilliant that you are not putting the cat litter into landfill. Congratulations

Too much gravel!

Gloobe Artichoke/Perennial Veg

Posted: 29/10/2014 at 18:32

Hello bookmonster (great name) Does it get any sun from the South? If it gets a fair bit of sun, you could try Asparagus; it needs good draining soil and shelter from strong winds. A Globe Artichoke will take up about 2m in height and width, but is well worth it. Again it needs a fair bit if sun as it is a Mediterranean veg. They were grown commercially, I believe, by the Romans in Britain but I think the climate may have been warmer then. Are you in the North or the South?
