How to grow asparagus
The arrival of the asparagus season is eagerly awaited each year. The fresh, sweet new shoots seem to appear overnight from the bare soil. If you are going to grow your own Asparagus, you need to know it’s a long-term crop. During the first two years you won’t get many spears - it’s not until year three that you will start getting a crop. When established in beds, asparagus can last for at least 20 years or more.
