Asparagus is a hardy perennial. Asparagus should be planted as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring, one year old crowns can be purchased at you local garden center which will speed up the harvest. If grown from seed it will add a full season before the asparagus can be harvested, harvest only after the plant is 3 years old and is established, as the plot matures it will yield more asparagus. The first harvest year should be kept to a minimum. A well maintained plot will produce for over 20 years. Moist well drained soil.
