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.

Review:

The only down fall with growing asparagus from seed is that it does obvious take a while to get big. Like years. But what can you do lol. Anyways I just wanted to say that this plant surprised me coming back this year. Where I live, winters reach -40 Celsius so this plant is very hardy. Of course I planted it as a seedling and didn’t think it’s frail structure would survive but sure enough it did. It seems almost without any problems at all. Try it out!

Review:

I ordered and planted these 2 years ago, and every seed came up! I had surgery, and all my seedlings died before I got home. I just planted them again this spring. The package says 75 seeds. My packages had 150 seeds.

Review:

So I planted 40 seeds and got 40 plants.... who knew! Thank goodness I just bought a farm! My postage stamp of a yard here in the city has no room for a patch that size, but, the 8.2 acres down in the country does. These plants have been a pure joy to watch grow. The 1-2mm thin asparagus spears have turned into bushy little plants. I started them in a plastic cell flat and have moved them to 4" pots. I have noticed the ones I have in a partly shaded location are growing much better as the summer has gotten hotter. I counted 38 spears on one tiny plant. Looking forward to the day of tasting them for the first time.

Review:

I started these from seed in 2012. I put them in a raised bed, in a windy location (I was advised not to, but it was the space I had). They took off. It began with small, thin as can be spears, but they kept coming and would grow into giant ferny fronds. I would cut away the dead after the first snow and add some more compost, Black Forest mulch, and nutrients to the soil. By 2014, I began to take a few of the thin spears to use in omelettes, and yes, they were producing prolific amounts of seed, and the fronds would become dense. In 2015 we began getting rather mature looking spears and so I harvested some more. This year (2016) we got beautiful asparagus - albeit inconsistent - some is thick and very mature looking, while others look like babies (I wonder if it has re-seeded on it's own). The taste is far superior to anything I would buy, though I have not tried blanching. So glad I took a chance.
