Planting Information for Asparagus Plants

Spacing

  • 12" – 14" between plants unless otherwise specified
  • 6" – 8" between plants is recommended for Purple Passion
  • 3’ between rows
  • Furrows should be 8" – 10" deep for most soils
  • Furrows of 8" is recommended for heavier clay–like soils
  • Add 30 percent sand to the soil to help with drainage. This will help them from root rot and fungal growth. 

Irrigation

  • Jersey Giant asparagus Plants need a well–drained site
  • Lighter soils may require more frequent watering
  • Important to maintain moisture during establishment year

Fertilization

  • Before planting Jersey Supreme asparagus plants, add 5lbs of 10–10–10 per 100 sq ft
  • In establishment year dress in August with 1 lb 10–10–10 per 100 sq ft and work into top 2" of soil
  • In following years use 2lbs 10–10–10 per 100 sq ft in early spring and again following harvest
  • Lime, bone meal, and super phosphate help maintain proper soil levels
