|Asparagus is grown from 1- or 2-year old crowns planted in January or February,
or as soon as the ground can be worked. Choose a sunny spot for growing your asparagus. Male asparagus cultivars such as Jersey types (?Jersey Giant?, ?Jersey Knight?, and ?Jersey Supreme?) are more productive and resist disease better than the female cultivars (?Washington? types). For an in-depth discussion of growing asparagus, download the following publication on aspargus authored by Texas A & M. Here's the web address:
Good luck with your asparagus!
