Hi, My partner and I have purchased a property in the Adelaide Hills and are keen to find out more about growing asparagus - not sure where to buy seeds etc can somebody point us in the right direction ? Thanks Jacquie

Try Bunnings or some nurseries or look on the internet. Buy some crowns (9-12 mths old). Can start from seeds - will take a year longer though and it requires a lot of attention. I had up to 30 seedlings last year and only 6 survived.

Planting asparagus from seed will take a lot longer before you get a crop, three years. Go to your local nursery and ask for asparagus crowns, which can then be planted out. This can still take up to 2 years to be productive.
