Ordering Information
How To Grow – Crowns are best grown in an open, sunny site, but will tolerate some shade - full sun produces more vigorous plants and helps minimise disease. Any soil type is fine as long as it is free draining, remove any weeds and add plenty of aged manure or compost. When planting asparagus, choose fresh ground to avoid any build-up of pests – don’t replant an old asparagus bed with new asparagus. Space the crowns 30-45cm apart and spread the roots out evenly, but handle with care as they can easily break.

More Information – Crowns are available at the beginning of April. Potted plants are available from our nursery all year round. The prices listed are for quantities per thousand, if you wish to place a smaller order please get in contact with a member of the team.
