        Purchased these crowns to expand my asparagus bed. When they arrived my wife was amazed with their size and hardiness. The instructions were very helpful: all 25 sprouted within a week. Couldn't be more pleased with this purchase!

          The asparagus buds arrived well packed and healthy. After planting them, they thrived in the bed that was prepared for them.
          The instructions that were included were very helpful. I look forward to eating asparagus next spring.

          Comments about Purple Passion Asparagus, 25 Crowns:

          I have planted them along a fence line so when they are fully grown they will act like a wind block during the winter months. They do take a very long time to grow so if you are planing to getting some make sure to get them as soon as possible because they require time to mature. Over all it will have been the best thing for my family because we all like to eat asparagus and hopefully we will be able to preserver them for future use. We will be eating good and healthy all year for many years to come.

              I was really impressed with the asparagus crowns that I received. They were all large and appeared very healthy.
              The instructions were very helpful.
              Every single one of the crowns has put up multiple stalks...can't wait to try them next year!!

                          Wasn't sure how this would work since I do not have land to grow on. I live in the city and planted the asparagus in a half wine barrel. Based on the instructions, I only planted four so they would have room to grow. Everyone told me they would give me trouble but so far so good! They came in quickly and are healthy and hearty!

                          I did read that you should not really harvest in the first year (some people say first three years, since they can last up to twenty) so I am letting them go crazy.

                          Slower to begin growing than the Jersey verity; Plants are beginning to sprout; the first week saw little growth but appears now to be coming up.

                            • If you love asparagus and want to grow some yourself, waste no time in getting an asparagus bed planted.
                            • Dreaming of a backyard berry patch? An asparagus bed? Start with a raised bed. A raised bed isolates the perennial crop from invasive weeds and grasses that might creep into the growing area. All have shallow roots that don't compete well with weeds and that can be damaged by aggressive weeding tools.
