Planting Information for Asparagus Plants

Spacing

  • 12" – 14" between plants unless otherwise specified
  • 6" – 8" between plants is recommended for Purple Passion
  • 3’ between rows
  • Furrows should be 8" – 10" deep for most soils
  • Furrows of 8" is recommended for heavier clay–like soils
  • Add 30 percent sand to the soil to help with drainage. This will help them from root rot and fungal growth.

  • Lighter soils may require more frequent watering
  • Important to maintain moisture during establishment year

Fertilization
