Watch our video tutorial and learn how to grow asparagus in your garden. Planting and growing asparagus takes a little more effort than growing other veg, but can produce harvests for up to 20 years! For everything you need to know about growing asparagus, including planting the crowns, caring for your crop and harvesting the spears, visit our dedicated resource page.
Plants and gardens have always been a big part of my life. I can remember helping my Dad to prick out seedlings, even before I could see over the top of the potting bench. As an adult, I trained at Writtle College where I received my degree, BSc. (Hons) Horticulture. After working in a specialist plantsman's nursery, and later, as a consulting arboriculturalist, I joined Thompson & Morgan in 2008. Initially looking after the grounds and coordinating the plant trials, I now support the web team offering horticultural advice online.
