Asparagus Crowns are here!

March 8, 2017

asparagusJersey Knight asparagus crowns arrived March 8, 2017. There are 20-25 crowns in a bundle. One bundle is typically enough for a backyard bed. Give them a permanent, very sunny home in your yard because these can last about fifty years.

Now and early spring are the perfect times to build your bed and plant them.

Print out our asparagus sheet for instructions, and stop by and see us soon!
