    While I just planted this today, I want to give a shot out to the quantity of seeds. MI advertises 100 seeds, I got 123 seeds in my packet. If they’re like the rest of the seeds I’ve started from here, I should be able to fully restock my asparagus patch with fresh sprouts!

    100% germination, in only 3 days! I’ve never grown asparagus before, so I’m quite pleased with such a good start.

    Germinating the seeds now for this year and only 1 in the whole package didn’t germinate. I bought 3 packs cause I was expecting worse germination rates so I guess some of my friends will get some asparagus seeds!

    The germination rate was great and the seedlings took a lot of abuse, like letting them dry out in the pots several time. Of course, it will take years to get asparagus to harvest, but 99 cents for as many plants as you could make a bed for is a pretty good deal.

    Great germination and put on a lot of growth in the first year.

    I started in peat pots and had good germination even though I let them dry out almost completely several times.

    Germination was slow for me. I planted half of the asparagus seeds in packs in my grow room, and half straight outside. The grow room ones came up much faster than the outside so I think it was a little too cold for them at first. All are growing fine now. I still have a year to go on these before they start producing but I am so far really impressed with them. Zone 4 Alaska.

    Started the whole package and I think all of them came up. Transplanted nicely in to their forever garden bed and continue to produce lots of ferns. A good layer of leaf mulch has kept the weeds in check. Taste review to follow in 2 years.

    Good germination and healthy plants with lots of ferny leaves. I’ve recently relocated to Thailand and they grow well here too, surprisingly. Taste test in 2 years!
