Asparagus officinalis 'Gijnlim'

This male dominant F1 hybrid variety is a favourite with commercial growers as it produces heavy crops very early in the season. Disease resistant and reliable, it does well on sandy and clay soils. The green spears are of medium thickness and have good flavour.

RHS Award of Garden Merit  RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Season: early.

 

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 mid May.
