Delicious tender asparagus spears cut directly from your own patio. These asparagus crowns are supplied with two grow bags making them perfect for growing in small spaces such as patios and balconies. Asparagus grown in growbags will take 2 years to crop but will crop for up to 3 seasons after this. Height: 150cm (59").
Water asparagus plants regularly particularly during hot periods, to prevent them from drying out. In autumn cut back the yellowing foliage and mulch the crowns with well rotted manure to protect them from frost. Feed with a general fertiliser each March.
Do not harvest the asparagus spears during their first season. Allow the plants to develop foliage. In autumn cut back the yellowing foliage and mulch the crowns with well rotted manure. Feed with a general fertiliser each March. A limited crop of spears may be harvested in the second year during April and May when they reach 15cm (6") tall. By the third year, the crop can be fully harvested. It is essential to stop cutting from the end of May to allow the shoots to develop into foliage. Later harvests will weaken the plant.
