The deeper you plant them, the thicker their spears will be when ready to harvest, so dig trenches to around 15 centimetres deep.Asparagus also likes well-drained, fertile soil. Before planting crowns, add plenty of well-rotted manure, seaweed and other organic matter as well as a little lime if your soil is very acidic. The pH should be six to eight, ideally.Your turnWhat else do you like to do in your winter garden?
