Description

The vegetable garden caviar, which tastes so much sweeter and lovelier if very freshly picked. If you have plenty of room, growing your own Asparagus is a must. Planting both of these varieties will maximise productivity, and extend the growing and harvesting season.

This collection contains 5 crowns each of:
  • Asparagus 'Millennium' – a main season variety, with large spears, high yields and delicious flavour
  • Asparagus 'Gijnlim' – a famously tasty new hybrid variety

These are sent out ready for planting straight away and come with full planting and growing instructions.

Care Tips

Keep your asparagus bed weeded, and well fertilised. Do not harvest the spears in the first year (the plant needs time to grow out its root system), but Cut back once they start to die off in the autumn and side-dress with compost.
