How to grow asparagus

Asparagus can be planted as soon as the ground is workable in spring. Asparagus is a perennial vegetable so it comes back year after year. The fern-like stalks will grow up to 6’ tall. While asparagus may use more space and take about 3 years to come into full production, they ultimately pay off, providing spears for 15–20 years in spring.
