My asparagus is showing absolutely no signs of growth - has anybody else got the same problem?

  • I sympathise - planted new crowns last year and nothing showing so far - had a dig around and absolutely nothing.  Just ordered new crowns to start all over again!

    Hi Lesley

    My asparagus would have been four years old now and I was really, really looking forward to picking lots!

    I'm going to wait just a little longer before getting new crowns.

    Whereabouts are you Lizzie?  Hopefully yours is delayed by the cold but will appear soon image

    I hope you are lucky, but if you need to get new crowns, I can recomment Kent Asparagus - my new crowns delivered today and quality is excellent.

    Fingers crossed for your crop.
