RHS Award of Garden Merit  RHS Perfect for Pollinators

 

Asparagus 'Pacific Challenger' (mid season)

This new F1 hybrid is very well suited to cooler climates and performs well in wet soil conditions. It is one of the most disease resistant varieties with tolerance to Phytophora and Fusarium crown and root rot. Produces heavy crops of slender green spears with tight tips and very good flavour.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Available for delivery: April - 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 large one year old crowns which will establish quickly so that you can harvest your first crop (we recommend only sparingly) just one year after planting. Plants should be spaced 38cm (15in) apart in rows 1m (3ft) apart. Available from April to late May.
