Asparagus Bed One

  • I was well behind this year cutting the asparagus ferns back on bed one due to been busy sorting out the new garden which was an enjoyable task but took time and effort and a lot of hard work,all the asparagus varieties I grow are the modern F1 all-male types because they give more yields of spears that the old heirloom types,the new purple varieties of asparagus are becoming very popular because you can eat them raw or very lightly steamed 
    Images of Asparagus bed one which was planted out with the first crowns planted out in 2017 I went against all the expert's advice and planted the asparagus crowns in a deep hole which has worked we were harvesting the spears in 2020 for the first time notice the covering of snow on the asparagus bed

    On bed one, I am growing Pacific Purple, Jacmar a new purple variety, and Stewarts Purple I grow the modern F1 varieties of asparagus as you get more spears from the older varieties and you can eat them raw as they are not tough and stringy 
    When growing asparagus and cutting the spears is finished you let the asparagus fern grow as long as it wants because the nutrients from the fern goes back into the asparagus crowns once the fern turns brown you cut it down to the bottom of the asparagus crown, Images of the asparagus fern taken on a very cold day
