I have two artichoke plants that I purchased last winter. One died back to the ground and came back while the other fought through a few cold snaps but was still relatively small .

Now my plants are starting to overcrowd other plants and I was thinking of moving the two, to a different area and while doing this I want to split into several different plants.

Is it too late in the season to attempt this? We are already into the high 70's lower 80's, with the monsoon rains in the forecast for spring.

Your gonna shock the heck out of them. But ! You could probably get away with it though, by providing them some shade. Till shock wheres off.
You know they will grow 6 to 8 feet dia. I'd plant them on protected side of house, or east side , so they only get morning sun.
Next winter. Protect them with straw, burlap, or something. If plant dosent freeze back, you'll get, longer, better crop. Thumbs up nodding

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
