My wife bought me some crowns that were on sale in Aldi last week and I wondered could they be planted this late in the years or is it better to plant them next spring? Could they be planted in a pot in the greenhouse now?

I don't grow asparagus- my garden's not big enough- but I eat loads of it and I can tell you it's really late this year, so don't give up yet!!

plant them now. Those planted last october will probably come up soon provided they were planted deep enough (8-9inches) to escape frost. They will not produce a satisfactory crop until they have been planted for 2-3 years.

I am getting Asparagus from the plants I put down last year in the spring. No sign of the later ones just yet.. Out of the first seven plants I put down last year, four seem to have made it.
