Just got my first artichoke a small seedling l have it in a pot with potting mixture slight yellow on two leaves though when l transplanted it from the tiny punnet l fertilised with seasol. My question want to grow it in a very large pot and if that is possible what soil is best and do they need watering regulary such as keep the soil moist or let it dry out slightly between watering.
