The asparagus crowns arrived today. I soaked them in water for an hour and then planted them 10″ apart on the hill of loose, amended soil at the bottom of the trench. The generous root systems were carefully fanned out and extended along the trench. I covered the crowns with 2-3″ of soil and watered well.
Total Costs for this project:
Compost and Plant Food: $24.00
50 Jersey Giant Asparagus Crowns (two year) $46.00
Total Materials: $70.00
Labor: 4.5 hrs.
