It's a popular choice for home gardens and farmer markets. The Mary Washington asparagus is an heirloom variety, it's been around for over a century and it's considered a classic variety.

    To grow Mary Washington asparagus, you will need:

    • Well-drained, fertile soil
    • Full sun
    • Asparagus crowns

    Growing Instructions:

    1. Prepare the bed by tilling the soil to a depth of at least 12 inches, and amend it with compost or well-rotted manure.

    2. Plant the asparagus crowns in the late winter or early spring, spacing them about 18 inches apart and covering them with 2 inches of soil.

    3. Water the asparagus regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.

    4. Fertilize the asparagus with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.

    5. Provide support for the asparagus, as they grow.

    6. Do not harvest any spears during the first growing season, this will allow the plants to establish a strong root system.

    7. Starting the second year, harvest the asparagus for about 4-6 weeks.
