As an early spring perennial vegetable, asparagus can be grown as food for you and your family for over 15 years with one planting.
You can either start your seeds indoors in seed trays or outdoors in a bed for later transition to another larger space.
You’ll want to plant your crowns 12-18” apart either in trenches or individual holes.
Asparagus thrives in full sun (8 hours a day) and well-draining soil.
Mulching around your plants in the fall can be an excellent way to hold moisture and keep weeds down.
