How to Growing, planting, harvesting Asparagus - Gardening Tips; 3:27 min.
Go Green Published on Mar 13, 2017 asparagus plants are perennial, which means the same plants grow in your garden after year. The spears that we enjoy as a vegetable are the new shoots that emerge in spring. The most important part of growing asparagus is to realize that it will take a couple of seasons before you taste the first bite of homegrown asparagus. Plants need to be allowed to mature before you can harvest. They will remain in the same place in your garden for many years—15, 20, sometimes 30. In fact, a productive asparagus bed is a good reason to renovate your house, rather than move!
Asparagus grows well in all parts of the country except the warmest portions, zones 8b and higher. Because of the mild winters, plants do not go completely dormant. Plants cannot gain strength and will decline.
How much your family enjoys asparagus determines how many plants you will need. A good start is 10 plants for each person. If it is a family favorite or you plan to freeze some for later, you will need more. Category Howto & Style License Standard YouTube License
