£8.99 each

  • Hardy Perennial - sow indoors or on a seedbed (April-June); transplant later to flower for many seasons

If you hanker after the succulent and tender texture of asparagus but you’re put off by the price-tag at the supermarket then growing your own is the money-saving solution to getting those appealing spears in spring and summer and seeing a rewarding return in investment. (Those top-end packs of asparagus at the supermarket add up.)

Asparagus Millennium is a hit at the dinner table; it makes a great starter. Simply steam the green spears with purple tips and serve with a knob of butter, a pinch of salt and cracked pepper.

Grow the crowns in well-draining soil with added rich compost like J Arthur Bowers Organic Farm manure. We recommend you enjoy just the textured feely ferny stems of the asparagus in the first two years to establish before you enjoy picking the edible spears as they pop up from Year 3.
