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 'Guelph Millennium' (late season)

This male dominant F1 hybrid variety is exceptionally well adapted to cooler conditions and is therefore a very good choice for the UK climate. It performs well in a range of soils and produces heavier crops than many other varieties. 

RHS Award of Garden Merit  RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Available for delivery: late March - late May.


 

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.
