Tall artichoke plant snapped

Zone 97068 | Sdjurban added on May 19, 2019 | Answered

My artichoke plants are three year old. One of the stalks this year has grown to over 5’. Last night it snapped at the base. Is there anything I can do to save it? It was very healthy and has growing artichokes on it. Also how can I prevent this with my other two large plants?

There is no way to propagate the plant from the broken branch or cutting.
Propagation if through a division of the plant itself.
I would stake your other stems to give them some stability.
You can purchase small garden stakes at most garden centers. Tie the stem gently with some plant ties; also at garden centers.
