Planting Tips

Asparagus is a perennial bulb and stem vegetable that greets us every spring. It may take 2 to 3 years to get started and produce, so patience is needed! But then the plant can be productive up to 20 years, so we think it’s worth the wait.

Asparagus has male and female plants, with the female plants producing berries. Regions with cool winters are best for this cool-season crop

Planting Tips

For best results, plant on mounded hills 8"-12" tall and 18" wide of good quality soil that has been amended with Dr. Earth or equivalent organic fertilizers. For Zones 7 and 8, it's best to start seeds inside 2 weeks before last frost and move outdoors when they are 3 weeks old and beyond any danger of frost. Mulch the moundwhen the squash plant is 4-5 weeks old and has established itself on the mound. Some suggest that you cut out circles of landscap fabric and cut a hole in the center to thread the plant through and mulch on top of that to further improve drainage.
