Sowing Months Harvest Months
  • Soak the seed in cold water for 48 hours before sowing.
  • Sow seed 2cm (3/4in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of good, freedraining, seed compost.
  • Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at 15-20°C (59-68F) until after germination which can take 1-2 months and may be erratic. Do not exclude daylight as this helps germination.
  • Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or pots. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out during early summer, 45cm (18in) apart.
  • Plant into deeply dug beds with well-rotted compost added.
  • Do not harvest spears until plants are 3 years old.
  • Discard plants that produce berries, cut down and compost the foliage in late autumn each year.
