Gorgeous in the garden! Large tender-sweet stalks give way to tall, leafy ferns — definitely the queen of spring vegetables. This Collection includes plenty of crowns for a nice-sized patch or linear row. Absolutely delicious steamed, roasted, grilled and chilled. While asparagus plants are self-pollinating, the other variety in this collection will serve to give you an abundance of stalks.

The description says 50 plants total in the variety collection, will it be 25 of each type or could it be more of one type and less of another?
Lorrie on May 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There are 30 Purple Passion and 20 Jersey Knight in this Collection.
JASPER M on Nov 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees: 1) when the ground is not frozen, 2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F, and 3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.
how old are the roots?
Joe P on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Our asparagus crowns are one year old when we ship them out.
Will i have asparagus this year if i buu this?
Chad L on May 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I planted my asparagus in the fall of 2016 and I was able to harvest from some crowns in the spring of 2018, although not all crowns are producing spears that are thick enough to harvest at this point. The first year growth is generally very thin, so be sure not mistake it for a weed and then pull it out!
Starting with 10 crowns, will they multiply next year and have more crowns?
Donna B on Jan 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Donna, unfortunately the crowns do not multiply. One crown equals one plant. The crowns are planted about 16 inches deep into the soil and that???s how the next years stalks are produced. The crowns will send out roots approximately 3 foot deep and 3 feet in each direction. It will take approximately three years before you can start taking a hard picking of each asparagus plant. Once the plants are established in the ground, the plants/bed will produce for years.
I hope this information is helpful. Mark
What is the age of the crowns?
Terrel H on Jul 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They are one-year-old crowns.
why dont you state specifically what varieties and how many of each are in each collection?
Scott O on Jun 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The information you're looking for is stated above. The varieties in this collection are Jersey Knight and Purple Passion, and there are 10 crown of each variety included.

sturdy crowns
This is the second year for my crowns, and the stalks coming up are nice and fat this year - looks like the real harvesting will begin! I also think I didn't plant them in a place with quite enough sun. However, it's worth the wait for the fresh asparagus. I would purchase again.

Great plants
I planted the Stark Asparagus next to asparagus from a different supplier and the ones from here have grown much better.

All 100 lived!
We ordered 100 crowns last year, and they all came up (even during an abnormally hot, dry summer) the first year. This spring they've spread, and they're looking great!

Year 2 and so far so good!
This is my second year and things are going great they all came back this spring. I will just watch them grow and look forward to a limited harvest next year.

Healthy plants in the second year
We planted these in the spring of 2018 by the spring of 2019 they are sending up big fat asparagus shoots. The purple ones are gorgeous. I feel like we could have already harvested lightly this year, but we are holding off until next. So far, the plants seem very robust.

Asparagus everywhere!
The asparagus arrived with the other items in the order and my husband set about planting them. They were kind of concerned because they kept finding more and more crowns! When I went to review my order I discovered that I had made a mistake in reading the description! But its okay! We have found that there is always a reason for things that happen in our lives. This one is apparently going to involve lots of asparagus!! Haha! The plants themselves are lovely and will be nice when mature enough to harvest. Looking forward to it.
