Tall artichoke plant snapped
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.
