Here's When You Should Really Be Planting Asparagus In Your Garden
Asparagus is an incredible plant to grow that provides a continual harvest throughout early summer. For bountiful harvests year after year, plant it in the early spring or fall.
The best months to plant asparagus are April, May, or early June. You can also plant it in the late fall while the soil is still warm, giving the plant more time to be established.
Asparagus also needs a dormant period, which happens in cold weather. This period helps produce the crowns and roots, so you have a strong asparagus crop when it's time to harvest.
