The Advantages of Jersey Hybrids:
Because asparagus beds can produce spears for 15 to 30 years, it should be planted at the edge or end of the garden. The amount of asparagus you grow depends upon the amount of people you will be feeding and whether it will be eaten fresh, frozen or canned. Normally 10 crowns will provide one person with fresh asparagus for the season. Plant 20 asparagus crowns per person if you are planning on freezing or canning the spears.
