Plant Details:

Remove Asparagus roots from shipping box immediately and untie the bundles. Do not water Asparagus roots. If you are going to keep roots longer than two weeks, untie bunch and spread roots out. Store in a cool dry place.

Will grow in any type of well drained soil. Prefers a soil pH level between 6.8 to 7.2.

Dig a trench 8” deep. Root should be laid flat in bottom of trench with crown or top of root upright in middle with entacles spread evenly in each direction. Only put 2”– 3” of soil on top at time of planting. As plant grows more soil should be added. Space plants in trench so tentacles touch, approximately 12”–18” apart. It is better not to take spears the first growing season. This should provide you with a better crop the next season.

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND MULCHING AROUND OUR PLANTS or fertilizing plants until after roots are established. Do not plant or pot in any media containing bark or wood chips. We do not recommend potting in containers smaller than one gallon.

Spring

In full sun, leaving the asparagus fern to die back in fall.

Plant Details:

Asparagus roots need no watering. If you are going to keep roots longer than 2 weeks, untie bunch and spread roots out. Do not store in a damp place.

Will grow in acid, alkaline, sandy, clay or any type of black soil. If potting, use any type of potting soil.

Dig a trench 8" deep. Root should be laid flat in bottom of trench with crown or top of root in middle with tentacles spread evenly in each direction. Only put 5" of soil on top at time of planting. As plant grows more soil should be added. Space plants in trench so tentacles touch, approximately 12" to 18" apart.

Two years after planting asparagus fern will reach 5 to 6 feet high after 3 or 4 six inch spears have been picked in spring. Suggest planting next to a fence or in front of a living hedge or next to a storage building wall.
