PLANTING

The best time to set out Purple Passion Asparagus roots is from April 10 to May 20. Roots are set 12-14" apart in a trench 6-8" below ground level in rows 4-5' apart. Initially covered with 2" of soil with the remainder of the trench being gradually filled throughout the rest of the year. Light cutting is possible the year after the bed is established. Take care in locating this planting as it could last a lifetime. Large two-year-old roots.
