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.
