All these superb Asparagus varieties are fully hardy and crop every year, so you can enjoy delicious homegrown Asparagus from spring to summer for at least 10 years, and more likely 20!

Long cropping, great value and easily manageable.  We've selected the very best Asparagus with early, mid-season and late varieties; specially chosen to give you great value and the longest cropping time.

Collection includes 15 crowns:

5 x Asparagus Pacific 2000
Asparagus Pacific 2000 is acknowledged as the benchmark variety for flavour in our trials, with excellent spear and head qualities. Crops from Early April - Mid June.

5 x Asparagus Ariane
Asparagus Ariane has good-looking stems and a distinctive, full flavour. This purple-topped beauty came first in our trials of over 250 varieties. Crops from Late April - Late June.

5 x Asparagus Millenium
Asparagus Millenium produces slim, tender heads and spears of comparable quality to early season varieties, putting it in a class of its own in the late season asparagus bed.  Crops from Mid May - End June.

How you receive your asparagus plants

You receive your asparagus plants as crowns which look like green stubs attached to lots of roots. This is perfect for planting out now. These roots are covered in a little soil to keep them moist and kept in a plastic or newspaper wrap to prevent the crowns from drying out.

Can't plant straight away?

You can keep your asparagus crownsin their wrap for as long as 3-5 days so long as you make sure the soil part around the roots is kept moist.

Look to planting in their permanent position within 5 days.

Ideal collection for a small plot. Arrived in good condition although late in the season. Planting instructions would have been helpful as books seem to differ and the experts are always right!
