Before doing anything to your soil have the soil tested to determine just
exactly what the soil is missing. Check with your local Farm Extension.
The soil tests are usually inexpensive and come with easy to read
details and suggestions on how to correct soil to a better pH.
Pay attention to the phosphorus and potassium levels. Micro nutrients
are not important to successfully grow Asparagus . Let the soil testers
know that Micro nutrients are not important and it may be possible to get
the test done for even cheaper. The composted manure and compost
from kitchen waste are normally abundant with phosphorus and adding
course sand may be all your soil needs.

Choose a sunny site with fertile soil that’s clear of weeds and grass and
remove any clay and large rocks. Plant the Asparagus crowns 12 - 14
inches a part or give them 1 square foot.
The fronds will grow 5 - 6 feet tall. Leave the ferny foliage stand all summer
and late fall . After a good frost has come and you know winter is just around
the corner then cut the ferns off.
