We will be putting in an asparagus bed somewhere - it is a perennial so it will need a permanent home -Step by step, year by year, how to grow asparagus
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.
