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.

Asparagus Duo (Autumn Planting)

Grow your own tasty crop of asparagus this autumn. You don’t need an allotment to grow your own asparagus spears. A bed measuring just 1m x 1m is big enough to plant up to 8 asparagus crowns. Once established, you can harvest up to 15 spears per crown! To help you on your way, we have picked out two tasty varieties for you to get started - Ariane and Mondeo. These varieties are both well suited to autumn planting, settling in to summer-warmed soils from early October, which gives them a 6 month head start on spring planted asparagus.

Plus, you can also save on our raised bed and fertiliser. Raised beds are ideal for growing asparagus as they provide well drained soil conditions. Asparagus hates waterlogged soils - in fact it is very drought tolerant, although it is advisable to keep the plants watered during the first season of establishment.

Asparagus 'Ariane' - From German breeding, Asparagus 'Ariane' produces a heavy flush of delicious, large, purple-tipped spears early in the season. Smaller, 'fine' spears are also produced later in the season. This attractive variety has significant yield and quality improvements over many other varieties. Height: 150cm (59in). Spread: 45cm (18").
Asparagus 'Mondeo' - This versatile variety has created huge interest due to its impressive yields and quality, especially early in the season. The delicious spears have tight tips throughout the season, with excellent flavour and good disease resistance. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 45cm (18").
Raised Bed (normally £45.99) - An easy way of growing your asparagus crowns. The heat absorbing panels assemble in minutes making a 1m x 1m growing area. Suitable for growing 8 crowns.
800g pack of Chempak High Nitrogen Feed (normally £9.99) - The ideal all year round feed for green vegetables. This feed has a high nitrogen content which will get the leaves and stems of young plants off to a strong start.
