Asparagus is a perennial crop that is easy to grow and will continue to produce for up to 20 years!
You can purchase year-old “crowns” from most nurseries. Asparagus plants can also be grown from seeds, but it can be rather difficult, so buying some “yearlings” is much easier.
With very little maintenance, you can have a bed of asparagus producing in 2 to 3 years, then every year after that. It’s an amazing crop! The best thing is, you can make your asparagus plot as small or as large as you want.
