Asparagus Growing Tips and Advice
Asparagus and tomatoes grow well together and smaller asparagus is less tender for eating. This vegetable needs to become dormant in the winter, so you need a good winter season to grow asparagus.
The secret is good soil preparation. To plant crowns, dig a trench that's about 1 foot wide and 15 inches deep and then add compost. Put water-soaked crowns in trench about 18 inches apart. Press down lightly and cover with more compost and water. Add fertilizer at least once or twice during the growing season. Be sure to kill weeds. When the trench is filled to ground level, add more compost. If you have your own compost bin, then you don't need to buy compost, but purchased compost works too.
Days to Harvest: 2-3 years.
