Not all the plants can be grown by the same rules. So, if you are thinking to grow some Asparagus crowns, then here you can learn how. 

How To do it :

1. Choose a sunny part of the garden with good drainage.
2. Dig a trench and check the pH, which should be 6.5 to 7.5.
3. Plant the crowns about 8 in. deep and 15 in. apart.
4. Cover initially with 2 in. of dirt, and gradually fill the trench as the spears emerge.
5. The edible stems of asparagus rise directly from the ground. Spears that are about 8 in. tall are ready to harvest.
6. Snapping of the spear by hand is easy and protects the plant. You can use a knife, but be careful not to damage developing stems.
