Asparagus may sometimes have a bad rap in the kitchen and garden, but we love this perennial vegetable! Although bulk asparagus seeds aren’t difficult to grow, some patience is required as even the highest quality seeds are slow to germinate. Whether you direct sow bulk asparagus seeds or start the seeds indoors, wait to harvest the spears until the second or third season, depending on the variety. Choose between our treasured heirloom Mary Washington or our disease-resistant, open-pollinated cultivars. With the proper care, asparagus plants will produce for 20 years or more!
