Description

Asparagus is a long-lived perennial vegetable crop that is enjoyed by many gardeners. It can be productive for 20 or more years if given proper care. Select the new all-male hybrid asparagus varieties such as Jersey Giant and Jersey Knight. These varieties produce spears only on male plants. Seeds produced on female plants fall to the ground and become a seedling weed problem in the garden. Female plants also have to expend more energy to produce the seeds that decreases the yields of asparagus spears on female plants. The all-male hybrids out-yield the old Mary Washington varieties by 3 to 1.

Harvest asparagus by snapping 7 to 9 inch spears with tight tips. There is no need to cut asparagus below the soil with a knife. This may injure other buds on the crown that will send up new spears. The small stub that is left in the soil after snapping, dries up and disintegrates. A new spear does not come up at the same spot, but comes up from another bud that enlarges on another part of the crown.

Asparagus is very perishable and should be harvested in the morning when air temperatures are cool. After picking, immerse the spears in ice-cold water to remove the heat; then drain the water and place the spears in plastic bags.

The crowns arrived adequately packaged (mailing envelope) and in good condition. I only had room for 15 in my bed and shared the rest with my neighbor. I planted them within a couple of days, and within a week they were all up! This is my first experience growing asparagus, but so far I am very pleased with this product.

Nice , I've been planting them up and down the creek. Shipping was real fast given what's going on. I also bought one of their greenhouses, although I haven't got it put up yet. I have spoken on the phone with them. they are great at follow up, keeping you posted. This is what American company"s should be. I will be buying everything from them. A well run American company, with quality professional grade stuff, and the staff to back it up !

My Asparagus bed adventure

Location: VA

I am 71 years old and wanted an asparagus bed. I saw Growers Solution online and decided to try their bare roots. I bought 25 bare roots and planted them. 24 survived and my little Christmas trees are beautiful. If I get any asparagus next year, great. If not, i will look forward to getting some the following year. I enjoy getting up in the morning and going down and checking on my little treasures.

Love to garden and am starting to focus on perennial veggies and fruits. The Jersey Knight Asparagus makes the perfect addition! The seedlings came quicker than expected and the growth of the plants has been phenomenal. I've had 100% success. Dud not lose one plant. My family and I will be enjoying asparagus for years to come!

I've never planted asparagus before, and I was happy to find a really good deal on your two year old roots. I planted about half of them, they sprouted out multiple shoots per root within a few days, and they're growing very happily. It was a few weeks before I found someone who wanted the rest of them, and she had the same great luck as I did.

The slips arrived on time and I planted them within a few days in a raised bed. A few days later I walked out the back door and saw something sticking out of the dirt and thought, "who stuck a stick in my asparagus bed"? I walked over and one of the slips had pushed up a plant about 6-inches. Later in the day I looked again and a second one was about 3-inches. Only one slip didn't come up quickly and a few days ago it came up too. Extremely pleased.

Crowns arrived on time, we kept them refrigerated until the trenches were dug. Allthe crowns have now sprouted, the last one popped thru today. Some plants are already better than a foot tall. It is a great beginning.
