Asparagus Pacific 2000 Crowns x5
A variety bred for home-growers; it’s naturally sweet which gives you the option to enjoy the spears raw or cooked. Pacific 2000 is tender and gives you slim, tight spears for you to cut and add to summer salads some panache.
Enjoy harvesting spears after the first couple of years (it takes this long to establish and give you lots of spears in the long run. In the meantime enjoy the attractive feathery tactile ferns) in May and June when the weather is fair and warm. Take a knife to the base of every spear and make a clean cut.
In year three cut spears for three-five weeks only then leave spears after to develop into ferns. In following years you can afford to cut spears for an eight week period. For healthy and happy spears plant in a free-draining yet rich soil. We recommend you add a generous amount of farmyard manure of vegetable-growing compost to the soil before planting.See Full Description +
