Growing Calendar for Asparagus Backlim Crowns - Crowns
Delivery: Late February to Late April
Nothing beats the delicious flavour of freshly harvested home grown British Asparagus, simply steamed and served with melting butter!
Asparagus Backlim is a mid to late season male variety, with consistent yields of large, smooth spears with well closed tips. It boasts good disease resistance, and is a very reliable performer in the kitchen garden.
Marshalls supply one year old, well grown crowns. To allow optimum development do not cut in first year and cut spears only sparingly in second year.
Not all the plants have survived, one has died - or seems to be dead at present
These crowns also had mold and were in poor condition. Very poor quality of plants were sent.
The plants were not the same size, some were very big and strong looking whilst others not so.
Tomatoes taste just lovely picked fresh from the vine, tomatoes ripened by the sun have a unique flavour and sweetness making them great to add to salad, snack boxes or reduced to make delicious sauces.
Please unpack the plants as soon as you receive them and sit them in a tray of shallow water if they appear to have dried out in transit.
