What to grow in vacated veg beds....

I believe Jerusalem Artichokes are related to the Sunflower (girasol/jerusalem). The Globe Artichoke would make a fabulous architectural plant for the back of the border.

Poddington; artichokes are great for a diet as they are so fiddly, the effect slightly ruined by having home made mayo with them

Globe artichokes are a large (6') short lived perennial. I read recently that they are very good for you especially to fight off old age. You get them as cuttings and plant out late May.
