Asparagus – Gijnlim F1
Size: 2 crowns.
This variety is an early season, high yielding one that has a Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
It will arrive with you as bare-root crowns, which look like dead, dry roots, and should be planted as soon as possible.
Plant between March and May.
It is best to leave it for two years so that it can grow into a strong plant before cutting any asparagus to eat.
The crowns can also be planted from autumn to spring.
They need a sunny, sheltered spot, with well-prepared soil that ideally has had lots of manure or compost added to it during the previous autumn. Good drainage is essential too.
These crowns are available to buy from January until April.
