Cardoon leaves amidst mustard plants, on a bed of bark mulch

Last year I splashed out on 3 cardoons (Cynara cardunculus) in a bargain basement sale (5 plants for £5) from Trefhedyn garden centre. And they are shooting up! Planted in a sunny spot in Blue Bean Border, with a Vinca minor ground cover, next the Blue Bean tree Decaisnea fargesii.
