Asparagus crowns will take 3 years to establish before you should harvest them. Let them go to seed for the first 2 years and from year 3 onwards for the next 20 or more years you will be enjoying your own, fresh, home grown Asparagus and believe me, there are few things nicer in this world.
Grow in a sheltered and sunny position and mulch each year with some seaweed or well rotten farm yard manure.
Feed during the growing season with the organic and vegan Nature Safe Atlantic Seaweed Liquid Feed.
