Review:

I decided to try growing this variety from seed, and was thrilled when I saw the first tiny Spears peeking up this last spring. I transplanted them out a month or two later, and they're still producing new spears now at the beginning of August. This is such a learning experience! The biggest plants are a couple of feet tall, with six to eight stems, and the very best have stems over an eighth of an inch thick already. Naturally some are not as vigorous as others, but I have high hopes for a great harvest starting next year or the year after.

Review:

Great germination rate. Seedlings were fragile, but did well. Set them out in the garden in the spring, and kept them watered well. They're all doing very well. Will let them go this year, and will start harvesting next year.

Review:

I’m took a runner on asparagus seeds because it will be about 3 years until we can eat any and they need a dedicated patch but I’m so happy I did. The germination rate was wild - pretty sure every seed did its magic thing. This gave me way more seedlings than I expected. Started the seeds in Jan and got them into their patch in April. The teeny tiny asparagus spears are so cute. They are doing well - I’ll update as we go but so far so great

I only planted them this summer so I haven't seen yet how they will do. I think all the seeds I planted germinated.

Review:

Received the Precoce D'Argenteuil Asparagus seeds in 2014, separated one clump into three in 2016, gave away one bunch, grew the other two in a different location in my yard, eating the larger spears as they came up (raw), and have moved them again, separated into 16 individual crowns (they weren't as productive in the second zone) and they are already sending up new spears.. This asparagus is delicious and I can't think of any reason why I would cook them. The new planting space is designed for them to spread out even more, for years to come. Have Mary Washington Asparagus on the way and look forward to comparing, though I think the Precoce D'Argenteuil Asparagus will be my favorite.
