Asparagus Plants

The secret to asparagus longevity is soil prep and ditch-digging. Plants will provide for decades if done correctly. Asparagus does best in soil with a pH range of 6.5 to 7.5. Use a soil analyzer to test the soil. Dig a trench 8-10" deep and 12" wide. Mix removed soil with compost, aged manure, and super-phosphate. Fill trench with 3/4 of mixture. Spread asparagus roots out over mix and cover with 2-3" of remaining mix. Water in well. Resist harvest until the second season. Cut shoots 1/2" below ground when they are as thick as your little finger. Available March 1 and will be shipped at the proper planting time for your area. Cannot ship to AK, HI.
