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.

What is the best way to remove seedlings from a propogator?

I use a pencil or tiny dibber and push gently from the bottom through the drainage holes.
