Hi, I left Australia few years ago. Now I am also living in the Philippines (Siquijor, Visaya). May i ask you where you found the seedlings ? what specie ? I am originally from the French region of Provence in the South (Mediterranean cost). My village is a big producer of violet artichokes. Violet artichokes are smaller than Green globes, but they are smoother (you can even eat the rod") and their taste is incomparable. There are many varieties of violet artichokes of different sizes. in general, they are more suited to hot climate than the globe. For instance in France, we cultivate the Green globe in Britain (cold northern region) and the violet in Provence (Southern hot region). In Brazil, the violet artichoke has been introduced with full success around Sao Paulo (hot region), while the green globe is cultivated in Argentina (cold country). If anybody knows where and how to get the seedlings, we shall try to introduce this wonderful flower in Siquijor. Thanks in advance.
