Asparagus 'Connover's Colossal'
Appx 50 seeds per gram
A Very tasty and much sought after vegetable. This variety produces a good crop of thick stems after a 3 years in the open ground. Steamed or grilled and then drizzled with butter and pepper these are one of life’s luxuries. An easy plant to grow and recommended to anyone.
Sow seeds Indoors in January or directly outside from Mid AprilSeeds sown indoors/outdoors should be soaked overnight in warm water to help with germination of the seeds. After the seeds have germinated from indoor sowings they can be transplanted outside at appx 12 " spacing. Seeds sown outdoors should be thinned to 8" spacing’s and then again once the plants are more established to 12" spacing.It is recommended not to harvest the stems for the first 3 years to allow the plants to become more established. Keep the are weed free and do not allow the soil to become dried out. Adding well rotted organic matter to the soil prior to planting/sowing will encourage vigorous growth and an annual mulch of the same will benefit these plants enormously.
