Asparagus Crowns (Plants)

We have plenty of pot grown Asparagus plants which can be purchased all year and planted when you want, no rush to plant. Take the time to prepare your Asparagus bed to give your plants the perfect start.

Green asparagus (Connovers Colossal, Mary Washington and F1 Hybrids) 1 year old crowns/this year's plants. Our plants are pot grown and the crowns are grown in specially designed outdoor beds.

Crowns are supplied bare rooted during the dormant season December through to April. Crowns are best planted in late winter to avoid sitting in cold damp conditions. Plants are sold all year round as they are grown in pots and kept indoors. They can be planted any time of the year as the root ball is not disturbed during transit.

Minimum pot size is 9cm but you may receive them in 12cm pots as we pot on every few weeks

These are 1 year old plants and should not be cut till spring 2016

Asparagus Crowns (Mary Washington)

Produces heavier yields with tighter tips than the original. Emerald spears have the same superior flavour, reliability and extra-long cutting period.

Asparagus commands a high price at the supermarket, but commercially grown spears never measure up to the delicate sweet flavour of homegrown. Garden asparagus is a bargain, plant it just once for annual springtime harvests for 20 years or more.

Crowns which are grown outside in special Asparagus beds are only despatched throughout the dormant winter months from December to mid March and are sold bare rooted; after that pot grown plants are supplied. We will notify you with a delivery date after placing your order.

The plants are best planted on receipt and though a few spears can be cut the following year it is best left another year so that it can build into a strong plant.
