Asparagus officinalis

 

Growing asparagus from seed - either in pots or directly into the beds - gives the best viability, with a survival rate of around 100%. In addition, with direct sowing there is no transplanting or root shock to delay valuable root development. Asparagus is one of the earliest spring harvested crops.  You will find that Asparagus is a long lived perennial crop. May not do well in TX, MS, GA, LA, AL and Florida. 

The best time to sow asparagus seeds is around mid-April when the ground is warm enough to initiate germination. A good tip is to soak the seeds in water for a couple of hours before planting. You will find that this will help to speed up the germination process considerably. One year after beds can be harvested  in the Spring for 7-10 days.  After 2 plus years  a normal harvest of 2-3 weeks, and after 3 years you can get up to 6 weeks of harvest.
