Asparagus crowns available again late winter.
Asparagus crowns are young asparagus plants, and are ideal for growing in a sunny spot in a prepared bed. Plant the crowns around 30cm apart, and the spears will be ready to harvest in their third year. Once well established, each plant will produce up to 25 delicious spears per plant from late April onwards, and will continue to be productive for 25 years. Although they take a few years to establish, they are well worth the wait.
