Answer: After an artichoke plant has produced artichokes, the leaves are usually cut down to the ground. This encourages new growth and new artichokes from the perennial roots of the plant. If you want to propagate the plant, you can divide the root mass. The new shoots coming from the old plant will become new artichoke-bearing plants if you cut them away, with roots attached, and plant them in a new spot.
