Asparagus officinalis 'Guelph Eclipse'

The latest male dominant F1 hybrid to be bred at the University of Guelph, Canada, thrives in cooler conditions. It produces very heavy crops of thick, succulent green spears.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Season: early/mid.


Available for delivery: late March/April - early June. Last date for orders is Sunday 5th June 2022.


 

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 late March/April to early June.
