What would be a good planting site for asparagus?
Carefully consider possible planting sites as asparagus is a perennial crop. A well maintained asparagus planting may be productive for 15 to 20 years.
Asparagus performs best in well-drained soils in full sun. Planting sites should receive at least 6 hours of direct sun each day. Avoid shady sites near large trees and buildings. Raised beds are a good planting option for gardeners with poorly drained soils.
