Artichoke need a well drained soil so if the soil is heavy add some horticultural grit to the planting hole. 
Do not harvest the first year. 
Sow thinly from February - March indoors on to moist compost.
When the plants are large enough to handle transfer to small pots to grow on. 
Harden off the plants and gradually accustom them to the outside then plant out where they are to grow when the risk of frost has passed. Allow 60cm between rows. 
Alternatively sow outside during April where they are to grow sowing 2-3 seeds 1.5cm deep into finely raked well drained soil that has already been watered and 30cm apart.
