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.
Started producing spears two weeks after I planted
So far so good. I was concerned about the delay in receiving these crowns especially after the experience with my fruit trees. However they arrived in good condition. They were planted on my allotment and so far all seem to be growing. Will update this time next year when they have had a yearn to produce stalks.
