Asparagus is actually a perennial (a plant that lives for more than two years), spring or fall, flowering plant.   It thrives in maritime habitats and can survive in soils that are too saline for weeds to grow.   Crowns of asparagus are planted in the winter and your first shoots will appear in the spring. When you first start harvesting, those small shoots are often referred to as "thinnings" or sprue.

    How to Plant, Grow & Harvest Asparagus (click here for more detailed growing instructions)
    Asparagus seeds started indoors should be started in 4 inch pots approximately 3 months before the last frost. They will germinate best at daytime temperatures at around 75-80 F, and a low temperature at night of around 65F. It may take as long as 3 weeks for the asparagus seeds to germinate. To hasten germination, soak the seed for 48 hours in water prior to planting. Sow the seeds approximately 1/2" to 3/4" deep in rows approximately 2 feet wide. Seedlings should be transplanted or thinned to a minimum of 3-4 inches between plants. These seedlings should grow for a summer, and the following year the 'yearlings' should be transplanted to the permanent asparagus bed ... learn more
