Planting asparagus is a sound garden investment. Asparagus is a long-lived perennial vegetable, producing a first harvest in around two years, with yields increasing and continuing for up to 20 years!
Asparagus is the earliest of spring vegetables, nothing beats the taste of freshly cut asparagus straight from the garden. It’s highly nutritious too. Plant in a separate bed, where they can be left to grow for 20 years, and dig in lots of organic matter as they should not be disturbed once established. Choose between seeds, plants and bare-rooted crowns to start growing your own asparagus at home.
