How to Grow Asparagus get it right and crops will grow for 20 years. (Someday I'll have a yard so I can plant a beautiful garden!)
How to Grow Asparagus-If you love asparagus and want to grow some yourself, waste no time in getting started. Even with the best of care, an asparagus bed won't hit its stride for several years. But once that happens, the bed will produce an abundant crop of spears spring after spring for at least the next 20 to 30 years.
Growing Asparagus is quite easy. I have grown asparagus from seeds and that too in a pot! It is quite a hardy plant and tolerates cold winters and dry spells as well. Just don't overwater it. This year I am planting the crowns from my potted plant in a raised bed along tomatoes and coriander as both the plants discourage each others pests.

How to Grow Asparagus When to Plant : Plant The crowns in early-mid spring, as soon as the soil can be worked. Keep the asparagus patch free of weeds, especially for the first couple of years. Watering : Water frequently as crowns get established. After a few years, supplemental water should be required only during periods of drought.
How To do it : Choose a sunny part of the garden with good drainage. Dig a trench and check the pH, which should be 6.5 to 7.5. Plant the crowns about 8 in. deep and 15 in. apart. Cover initially with 2 in. of dirt, and gradually fill the trench as the spears emerge.
