Asparagus: First Crop to be Planted
Asparagus is a “Platinum-level” vegetable. It’s a delicacy that’s served in fine dining, but only occasionally grown in Texas gardens.
It’s also a rarity among vegetables, in that it’s a perennial. If you choose your variety wisely, plant it now, at the prime time for getting asparagus started, and care for it regularly, it will be with you for many years – getting better with each passing season.
A great place to find accurate information on growing asparagus
Rather than trying to tell you in my own words how you can be successful in growing asparagus, I decided to turn to the experts at Texas A&M. Here is an outstanding online publication with all the important details, written by Joseph Masabni, Assistant Professor and Extension Horticultures with Texas A&M. It’s outstanding.
