Soil and Nutrients

Artichokes need to be planted in soil that drains well because they requiring frequent watering, but their roots are susceptible to rot if they are kept in soggy soil. A sandy, fertile soil, that is on the alkaline end of the pH scale is ideal for artichokes. During your plant's growing season, apply a plant-based fertilizer to its base once every couple of weeks.
