    Planted these among four different beds, all of them took root and within days were anywhere from 8 inches to two feet tall. Very healthy stock!

    Up in a week

    Comments about : Jersey Supreme Asparagus, 25 Crowns:

    Crowns looked good and were up a week after planting. Four stars due to shipping process from their vendor. My other asparagus was in the ground six weeks prior to their vendor shipping my order due to our region frost dates. In the end it really doesn't matter on planting date since I won't have a crop until next year.

      We have some asparagus in the garden already and decided we wanted to expand our crop. We planted these at the end of the season and didn't expect to see them until next spring, but they popped up quickly! They are not thick enough to harvest but it was nice to see them to be sure they took and are healthy. Can't wait for next spring! The only down side is that we didn't have the space to plant them all.

          Planted these and they were up in a week or two. Most are thriving. Only one crown did not survive. Pretty good odds, I'd say.

              We are expanding our "edible landscape" and the Asparagus are an important food crop as well as adding beauty (and will hide the fence).

                Planted the crowns in a raised bed. Covered with sun cloth for the first week. They began putting out shoots within a week of planting. Put some in from a different vendor last year and none survived. These are incredible. Very healthy and good quality.

                  I had purchased some crowns from a local store, but they were small and did not produce much vegetation. These crowns, by contrast, are producing like crazy and will be in great shape for next year's mini harvest.

                  My wife and I originally planted the Jersey "Kings" crown sets, purchased from Gardener's Supply way back in 2005. Over the years, they have produced very many pounds of awesome asparagus annually that totally blows away the stuff at the grocery store! We will be moving next year and we were wanting to take our Asparagus with us, but that won't happen. So we've decided to come back to Gardener's and buy some more crowns and just start over. If the Jersey Supreme are as good as the "Kings" were then I know that we will be very happy with our purchase.
