Remove asparagus roots from shipping box immediately & untie the bundles.  Do not water your asparagus roots upon arrival. For best results, plant them as soon as possible.

Basic Asparagus Growing Info

  • Location Considerations: Asparagus require full sun. Since asparagus is a perennial and can continue to produce up to 15+ years, choose a spot that will not get disturbed.
  • How Many to Order: Wondering how much to grow? Established asparagus plants produce about 1/2lb. of spears per bed foot in spring/early summer. If you are just getting asparagus established for the first time, we would recommend 5-10 crowns per person. (covers 15-30 row feet) If space is not an issue, you can always grow more as asparagus is can also be frozen or canned.
  • Soil Type: Asparagus prefers well drained soil with a pH between 6.8 and 7.2. We do not recommend mulching or fertilizing your asparagus until the roots are established. Be sure not to plant in any media containing bark or wood chips. Do not plant into containers smaller than 1 gallon.
  • Planting:
  1. Dig a trench about 12″-18″ wide & 8″ deep. Lay the root flat in the bottom of the trench with crown or top of root upright in the middle with “tentacles” spread evenly in each direction. Trenches should be 2-3 feet apart.
  2. Space plants in trench so “tentacles” touch, approximately 12″-18″ apart.
  3. Put only 2″-3″ of soil on top at planting time. Add more soil as the spears grow.
  4. Water ~1″ per week. Keep asparagus bed free of weeds.
  5. Allow plant to establish a healthy root system the first season & begin harvest the following spring.
