Planting and care

Start prepping your soil one year before transplanting wild asparagus. Asparagus performs best when planted in an area with loose, well-drained, fertile, sandy loam or loamy soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 6.7; the area should receive eight hours of sunlight daily. Present a soil sample to your county’s agricultural extension office and request a full analysis

Caring for Asparagus UC

  • Till the soil for the asparagus bed to a depth of 1 foot using a mechanized tiller.
  • Add 2 inches of organic compost over the tilled soil and work it again to a depth of 1 foot with the tiller.
  • If necessary, distribute the recommended amount of lime evenly over the tilled soil and work it again to a depth of 4 or 5 inches with the tiller.
  • rrigate the soil until moist to a depth of 8 inches.
  • Check the depth of moistness by pressing a 10- to 12-inch-long wood skewer in the soil and measuring how far up the skewer the water reached.

Harvesting

Generally speaking, a plant puts up a set of skinny spears first, then fat ones, then finishes with skinny ones
