Asparagus takes approximately three years when started from seed to produce viable stalks. When first transplanted be sure to water well because asparagus has a very fragile root system. The HCCF asparagus plot is within the 1812 garden.
None to date.
Harvest early in the spring cut of the stalks just above ground level when they are 9-12” tall. Each root- ball will continue to send up shoots, but at some point it is necessary to let the shoots go so that they will replenish the nutrients in the root-ball. They will grow up to be Christmas tree-like stalks approximately 3’ tall.
