Don't give up on the late bloomers
Wendy from MI wrote on June 28, 2019

I ordered these late in the season and planted the day I received them in late May. All 20 plants sprouted, but varied greatly in time and vigor. Some came up in less than a week, others took 2-3 weeks, and two of them I'd given up on when they finally showed signs of life 4 weeks later. Interestingly, I saw no obvious connection between size of roots and quickness of sprouting or rate of growth. Indeed, the two which seemed dead had copious roots, while some of the earliest shoots arose from sparse, spindly roots. Likewise, some shoots grew tall very rapidly, while others sprouted quickly but stalled out at an inch tall, although most of those were eventually accompanied by additional sprouts (also not growing much), so I assume the roots of the multiples are simply putting their energy into quantity over quality for now. All 20 plants are in identical soil in one of my raised beds, and are receiving identical maintenance from me, so the varying growth patterns are probably par for the course, especially considering Michigan's cold, cloudy weather this Spring. I'm very pleased with my baby plants so far, but it's obviously too soon for me to rate their production. I look forward to my first mini harvest perhaps next summer, and of course, to fully enjoy the crop for years thereafter.

Planted this asparagus in my north Alabama garden 3 and a half years ago. We did not cut a single spear the first year and just a few (to try) the second. I dont think it would have hurt to cut 10 times more. The third year we could not keep up and we only planted 16 of the 20 crowns. Our friends and neighbors loved it too. Absolutely awesome on the grill! (follow ALL instructions when planting)
