5 crowns per pack | Grow your own asparagus! These Jersey Knight crowns will produce more and more each year and can be further divided after 2 years to increase production. A favorite variety for market growers- productive and tasty!

To plant: dig a trench, amend with compost for a rich, light bed, and plant the top of the crown just below the soil surface (roots can point down or sideways as long as they're buried). Plants will send up shoots this spring, but best to leave them alone for a year to build up strength (and admire their feathery foliage!). In future years, harvest freely but leave a few stalks to grow fully and send energy back into the roots.
