Garden Care

Your Asaparagus Will Arrive As Bare-Root Crowns And Should Be Unpacked And Planted As Soon As Possible. They Need A Sunny Spot, Shelter From Strong Winds And Well-Prepared Soil That Has Ideally Had Lots Of Manure Or Compost Added. Good Drainage Is Important Too, So If The Soil Is Heavy And Wet, It Would Be Advisable To Grow Them In A Raised Bed.

Dig A Trench 12 Inches Wide And 8 Inches Deep, Add Well-Rotted Manure, Cover In A Layer Of Soil And Then Pile Up Soil Into A Ridge Along The Middle Of The Trench, So That, When You Plant The Crowns (At Least 12 Inches Apart) The Bud Tips Will Be At Ground Level. Spread The Roots Out Evenly And Cover With Soil. Space Rows 18 Inches Apart And Stagger The Plants In Rows. Water And Mulch The Crowns Well After Planting.

During The Growing Season Keep Them Well Fed With A Dressing Of General Purpose Fertiliser And Make Sure The Bed Stays Free Of Weeds. The First Spears Will Appear Soon After Planting, But It Is Important That These Are Not Cut, But Allowed To Develop Into Feathery Stems Throughout The Summer. These Can Be Cut Back To Just Above Ground Level After They Have Started To Die Off In The Autumn.

Before The New Spears Appear In Subsequent Years, Make A Ridge Of Soil Over Each Row And Apply A Dressing Of General Purpose Fertiliser. If You Can Try To Resist Harvesting The Spears Which Appear The Second Year Too, As The Plant Should Be Left To Develop A Robust Crown Before Beginning To Cut The Spears In Their Third Year
