Asparagus Greenic Crowns
The earliest variety we know, producing reliable, good quality, tight headed spears from late April in most years. The number of spears per crown is extremely high, the most we have seen in trials! Spears have an excellent colour – perfect for gourmet dishes! It’s a tried and trusted variety which has excellent disease resistances.
Growing asparagus is a long-term, but incredibly worthwhile investment. Our new range consists of modern tried and tested hybrids, all well suited to our UK climate and with excellent disease resistance. We supply freshly harvested large A grade crowns, larger than those commonly sold.
We now only despatch crowns in the spring rather than the autumn, planting at this time is much more beneficial to the plant and future crop. During the summer the fern collects nutrients, as this dies back in the autumn the stored nutrients go down into the crown, making it larger and full of energy in readiness for spring. If lifted and replanted in the autumn, you are effectively destroying this process, therefore in the spring the crown needs to start collecting nutrients again causing growth that will be thin and weak.
Full planting and care instructions are included with every order.
