Asparagus

The ‘Queen of Vegetables’

No longer an expensive luxury Рmuch breeding work has been done on Asparagus in recent years.  The varieties we offer are F1 Male Hybrids Рthat will give a much heavier crop than many of the older types.

Asparagus Care Instructions

Planting is best carried out late March/April after the worst of the winter is over. Soil must be fertile, well-drained and prepared with plenty of organic matter. Plants will not establish well on a heavy soil. A few spears can be picked in year 2, but ideally leave harvesting until year 3.

Beware – slugs love young crowns and will happily hollow out your young roots, shoots and spears!

We offer two varieties – early and late cropping to extend the all-too short season. Please see our Fruit mail order catalogue for details of prices.

Backlim

Late season, heavy yield with thick, good quality, smooth spears.

Gijnlim

Dutch bred. Early season, high yield, medium thick spears.Excellent quality. Good Botrytis resistance.
