Just a thought, globe artichoke flowers are much loved by bees and I think they're more attractive than the unrelated Jerusalem artichokes and are more suitable for growing in containers, albeit still very large ones as they grow into magnificent plants. I would use a very gritty compost, loam based, to ensure good drainage. Put them in a sunny spot and feed every couple of weeks in the growing season - they're hungry plants.
Hope that helps.
If it's happy it grows as tall as most sunflowers and multiplies quickly via its tubers into a large clump. I think it would need a substantial tub and a method of staking to prevent it being blown over.
I would use a loam based compost with added grit and organic matter.
I prune plums in late May/early June for the reasons given by Pansy above.
