Asparagus Pacific Purple

Asparagus Pacific Purple is sweet and tender, with the thick, purple spears produced in May and early June. This is a high yielding variety that is super sweet when cooked. Asparagus spears are delicious lightly steamed and served with melted butter, or alternatively, they are suitable for freezing.
Asparagus are ideal for growing in a sheltered sunny area of the vegetable garden in well prepared ground, to which lots of manure or compost has been added the previous autumn. Keep the area weed free and water plants during dry weather. In autumn, cut down the ferny stems once they have turned yellow and before the spears appear in spring, make a ridge of soil over each row and apply a dressing of fertiliser.

Asparagus Gijnlim - 2 Crowns

Highly recommended for its flavour, Asparagus Gijnlim produces high yields of medium-thick, mid-green, tasty spears. Gijnlim performs well on sandy and clay soils but later spear thickness will remain good if you plant in well drained, fertile soil. It can yield for 12 years or more and has good resistance to Stemphylium and Puccinia diseases.

Harvesting period: May-Jun

Asparagus Connovers Colossal

Asparagus Connovers Colossal is an old favourite and has been awarded an Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society 2005. This is an excellent variety with bright green spears and deep purple tips, and produces an exceptionally high yield.
The crowns are best planted between March and May, and though a few spears can be cut the following year, it is best left for two years so that it can grow into a strong plant. Plant crowns in a trench that is 30cm wide by 20cm deep with a central ridge that is 10cm high. Place the crown on the ridge, spreading the roots out evenly and cover with soil. Harvest the spears in mid-spring when they are about 15cm tall and fairly thick.

Position: full sun
Soil: any moderately, fertile soil
Rate of growth: average
Hardiness: fully hardy
