"I would give it a try and find out first-hand. Artichokes don't seem finicky to me as long as they get sun and water. Since you're planting 4 artichokes, you will find out if the ones close to the fir will do well of not.…"
One thing I have discovered about Moringa trees is that they like to dry out between waterings. I think they are suseptible to root rot.
I lost a couple of small trees early on this summer because I started them in pots and I think they went into shock when I transplanted them into the yard. I currently have 8 of them that I planted this summer and they are doing well. I have been 'topping them' regularly to make them more bushy. I'm eating the leaves or drying them to use later.
Now I just hope they make it through the winter! Then I might actually get some flowers and seeds :) I'll be happy to share.
will need to be a little flexible as I never know how full my schedule is until I get to work in the morning. Usually Fridays end by 12-12:30. Do you have some flexibility in your schedule? If we can work it out I would love to do a trade. My # is 480-292-5971, I can't always answer my phone if I am with a Patient, but leave a message and I will call you back. I also have your number.
