Asparagus


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.

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. Height: 150cm (59”). Spread: 45 cm (18”).
