Question: 

What would be a good planting site for asparagus?

Answer: 

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.
