Improved Mary Washington Asparagus Growing and Maintenance Tips

Asparagus is best grown in a well-drained, deep soil with plenty of sunlight. The addition of potassium and phosphorous before planting increases plant health. Serious harvest should not begin until the third year. Plants should be top-dressed with rotted compost after every harvest season.
