When Do I Order Asparagus? - Knowledgebase Question

I want to plant asparagus in the spring and I am unsure of the month when I should order them from Burpee. Could you tell me the earliest time when I can order asparagus roots? Also, what is the most disease resistant plant for Western Pennsylvania?

As with most catalog situations, it is best to order as early as possible and reserve the plants. They are shipped in early spring when they should be planted. To verify availability, please contact Burpee directly. You may reach them at 800-888-1447. You might want to consult with your county extension (350-2540) as to which varieties tend to consistently do best over time in your local area.
