I have bought two asparagus plants from a local shop in a plastic bag with soil in it, I can see one of the plants has a shoot already, the instructions say plant in March, but I think the plant will die by that time. My query is can I plant the asparagus now in a pot and then transfer the plant to my allotment in March?
I too have bought some asparagus crowns & some rhubarb & haven't got my ground ready, as it's so full of stone & boulder that it's taking forever to clear it. I wanted to plant them in a container this year & then plant them out when the ground is ready, but I know rhubarb for one doesn't like to be moved when it's established. I don't really have a choice at the moment, I'll just have to go for it, but any advice/suggestions would be appreciated.
