Asparagus is one of the first plants that greets us in springtime! It’s a perennial, which means that once it gets established, asparagus will return year after year. Here’s how to grow asparagus in your garden.
Note: Asparagus plants may take 2 to 3 years to truly get started and produce, so patience is needed! But then again, the plant can be productive for up to 25 years, so we think it’s worth the wait.
Asparagus has male and female plants, with the female plants producing berries. Regions with cool winters are best for this cool-season crop, which is planted in early spring.
