With so many asparagus plants and crowns for sale, you have a few choices to make. Use the following considerations to narrow your selection:

  • Soil type: Asparagus prefers plenty of sun and soil that falls within a pH range of 6.8 to 7.2, so ensure the soil in your area fits the bill.
  • Climate: Asparagus can grow in most climate zones. Still, you should be sure that the asparagus plants or crowns you want will feel at home in your area.
  • Desired yield: Many asparagus varieties give incredibly reliable, abundant yields. If you want a massive yield, you can get it from some specific asparagus types. Of course, make sure that you’re ready to tend to your asparagus. Like all vegetables, asparagus requires a bit of nurturing to make sure that it keeps producing. Keep your asparagus plot weed free and give it plenty of water when transplanting. This will help ensure a robust asparagus patch for years to come. 
  • Flavor palate: The flavors of different asparagus plants can be quite distinct. For instance, one asparagus variety may be more bitter, whereas another may be somewhat grassy and sweet. Asparagus enthusiasts often like to grow a few varieties of plants for this reason.
  • Longevity: Did you know that one asparagus plant can keep giving you harvests for 20 years? The secret to getting all the value you can from the asparagus plants you buy is paying attention to the needs of the plant. When you give proper care, you'll get the rewards of fresh asparagus each spring.

Asparagus grows best in well-drained, fertile soils with a pH range of 6.8 to 7.2. Apply enough lime to raise the soil’s pH to the necessary level. Asparagus needs direct sun, so when choosing your site, plan for a permanent spot in a sunny location. Asparagus is a perennial and should not be grown in a container or pot.
