Planting Heirloom Mary Washington Improved  Asparagus Seed

 Heirloom / Open Pollinated Asparagus is a garden perennial that is best adapted to sandy soils in moderate climates. For best production, Mary Washington Improved Asparagus plants prefer a deeply dug, well-prepared bed, with lots of organic matter. Heirloom Asparagus seeds can be started indoors 2-3 months before your last frost (for best results), or direct sow outdoors when the soil has warmed. Soak seeds in warm water for 24 hrs. before planting. Plant seeds ¼” deep in sterile seeding mix. Germination should occur in 14-21 days in soil 65-80°F. Set out Asparagus seedlings 10-18″ apart, in full sun.

    I had trouble getting seeds to germinate. The staff was very helpful and even sent a link with more info. Apparently asparagus are tough to grow from seed but I finally got 2!

    I was exceptionally happy with both of my orders from St Clare seeds. The shipping was fast, the seeds are very high quality, and my garden is growing amazingly well and already producing a harvest. 10/10 recommend them for all of your seeds. I can’t wait to plant more seeds, and try some new varieties.
