Mary Washington Asparagus crowns (4ct.)2-year-old crowns
One of the most widely grown heirloom varieties of Asparagus. This variety produces hardy stems that are more disease resistant, cold tolerant, and forgiving than other varieties. Plants multiply quickly and produce a fair amount of seeds that will multiply your crop over the years. The plants are cold hardy to zone 3 to zone 9. These crowns are mature and ready to grow the moment you plant them.
As soon as you get these plants, they must be planted. fertilize with a well-balanced fertilizer and water well. Bury the entire crown so that the tip of the crown is around 2 inches below the soil level. This will protect the crown from any cold weather. Do not harvest the first year. Let plants become established before harvesting.
