Park's Asparagus Collection
Great production and fine disease resistance from both strains!
We sell well-rooted bareroot plants, and it is important that you plant them at once upon arrival -- dry or withered roots are a problem for Asparagus. Prepare the soil well, adding plenty of organic matter and fertilizing with a well-balanced mixture such as 5-10-10. Asparagus has deep, spreading roots, so be sure the soil is well-worked. Set plants about 1 1/2 feet apart and water well during growth. Fertilize twice annually (before new spring growth and right after harvest). Cut no spears the first year, and cut only sparingly the second in order to encourage a great crop for the third year. If you want white (blanched) Asparagus, simply block out the light as the spears are forming by applying mulch on the plants.
