Question: 

When is the best time to plant asparagus?

Answer: 

Early spring (April) is the best time to plant an asparagus bed in Iowa.  Since asparagus is a perennial crop, carefully consider possible sites.  Asparagus performs best in well-drained soils in full sun.  In poorly drained sites, raised beds may be a solution.  Avoid shady sites near large trees and buildings.
