Growing Calendar for Asparagus Pacific Duo with Harvest Knife
Delivery: Early March to Mid April
Get two home-grown asparagus favourites into your own vegetable plot for years of succulent spears, wonderful in taste plus no need to fork out on expensive asparagus from the supermarket.
You get ten ready-to-plant crowns each of:
A variety bred for its natural sweetness which means you can enjoy it raw or cooked. Pacific 2000 is particularly tender, producing slim tight spears which we recommend you cut and add to salads to give them a satisfying and rare flavour.
Thick purple spear, naturally sweet and full of anti-oxidants. Pacific Purple lends itself to blanching, where you mound soil around the spears as they grow turning them pale and white and extra tender when it comes to harvest time.
We recommend you plant crowns in free draining soil with added farmyard manure like J Arthur Bowers Organic Farm Manure so you have the perfect soil texture and structure for your asparagus crowns to thrive- plant in full sun where possible. Cut spears for three to five weeks in the third year. In following years you can afford to cut spears for an eight week period. Enjoy Pacific Purple as whole spears and Pacific 2000 chopped and added to salads.
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.
