Asparagus Mary Washington
Early Asparagus producing thick dark green spears with sweet and succulent purple tips and showing good resistance to rust, crown rot and fusarium. For best results, sow a seedling bed in the first year allowing crowns to develop. In autumn, after dying back, space young plants in rows. Leave a further year to bulk up before picking regularly. Cull out any plants that dont perform well as good plants can produce for 10-15 years. Asparagus prefers deep well drained soil with added sand or fine stones under crowns with annual side dressing of rich mulch.
Matures second/third season from transplant.
