Asparagus 'Gijnlim' (early/mid season)

This male dominant F1 hybrid variety produces heavy crops of succulent green spears just one year after planting. It can also be grown as white asparagus if the plants are covered with a mound of sandy soil and harvested before they push through the ground.

RHS Award of Garden Merit  RHS Perfect for Pollinators

 

Asparagus 'Pacific 2000' (early/mid season)

This hybrid variety has been carefully chosen after many years of rigorous U.K. trials and is already proving very popular with commercial growers. It produces heavy crops of uniform spears that are so tender they can be eaten raw. The flavour is superb - it is perhaps the sweetest green asparagus variety available!

 RHS Perfect for Pollinators

 

Asparagus 'Stewarts Purple' (mid/late season)

This new purple hybrid is considerably sweeter than any of the green varieties. The low fibre content means the spears are particularly tender even when eaten raw, with virtually no waste at the base. Excellent cooked but also a very attractive and tasty addition to salads. Commercial trials have shown this variety to outyield many of the green types.

Available for delivery: late March - late May.


Price includes p&p.


 

More Information

Asparagus is expensive to buy in the shops but is easy to grow and tastes delicious freshly harvested from the garden. In our opinion there is no other vegetable that beats home-grown asparagus, simply steamed and served with melted butter or Hollondaise sauce. We supply one year old hand selected "Grade A" asparagus plants which will establish quickly so that you can harvest your first crop just one year after planting. Once established 12 asparagus crowns will produce up to 10kg (22lb) annually for 12 years or more. Plants should be spaced 38cm (15in) apart in rows 1m (3ft) apart. Available from late March to late May.
