I'm pretty sure I won't remember this past next week, but germination has always been good and asparagus is tough and yields are good.
The items arrived a little bit late because of the pandemic but they informed me of the delay and I was happy to wait. When I received the packet the seeds were healthy and I planted them. 100% germination rate. Thanks!
I was surprised and very pleased. Many of the seeds germinated and we have added them to our asparagus patch- man more than we expected
These seeds sprouted very quickly! I planted four in each pot and, on average, two per pot sprouted (so far). I’ve had them outside since the weather got nice and they’ve held up very well to the wind and rain. I know it will be a while before I can eat them, so I can’t comment on taste yet, but I love them so far!
I live in Central Florida, and thought I would give asparagus a try. Even if I got one fresh spear, I thought it would be worth it - bring back childhood memories from growing up in New England. Well, several of the plants I grew from seed over 5 years ago are still growing, and that's despite unavoidable neglect due to other demands on my time. Of the 2 varieties I've tried, the Mary Washington seems the toughest. I had no idea they would do that well here, under such harsh conditions. What a pleasant surprise.
