Growing Artichokes (Globe)

05 Apr 18 Denise Gibson (New Zealand - temperate climate)
We have some artichoke plants which I grew from seed and we had a few fruits last season. There are a few off shoots on all of the plants and I would like to know what time of the year I could divide my plants. Another question: Two of the plants did not have fruit as such and the plant itself was very thorny and the fruit was so thorny that you could not touch them. Do they have male and female plants? Thank you very much.
