Growing asparagus is a long-term, but incredibly worthwhile investment. Be sure to prepare your permanent asparagus bed in advance, so that you can plant the asparagus crowns without delay. Although asparagus beds take several years to establish, each asparagus crown can produce up to 25 spears per year and will continue cropping for 25 years.
Asparagus officinalis 'Planter Collection' (Autumn Planting)
Grow your own asparagus spears in even the smallest of spaces! This handy asparagus planter collection does not require a permanent bed or large growing area, making it perfect for a patio or balcony. Asparagus grown in planters will take 2 years to crop and will crop for up to 3 seasons after this.
Please note: Once growing in a planter it is not advisable to disturb asparagus plants and move them. To grow asparagus plants in containers, a planter of at least 60ltrs is required.
Each collection consists of 2 x 60 litre planters, plus 3 crowns each of Asparagus ‘Mondeo’ and Asparagus ‘Pacific 2000’.
