      hi Richo, I have some of your asparagus seeds. I was thinking about starting them soon in trays with deep cells on heat mats and/or in soil blocks. What do you think of those ideas. Then, maybe plant out in Fall. I am hoping to create a couple of beds. Here in eastern CT, I am in a cold area. More like Zone 5. Last year, killing frost on May 18th. No greenhouse, but a garage under the house with south and north facing windows and our oil furnace. Working on growing a few things indoors. Wondering about doing white asparagus in large plastic pots or those felt pots. Curious what you think of these ideas. Here, people usually start from bareroot in the spring and wait two years. I also wonder how much one of your two year old plants will spread. thanks

      Hi Edna,
      Asparagus is not know for spreading–it is a clumper. As a perennial, the seeds may be planted any time and the seedlings worked up. Yes, bareroots are usually planted in the spring but aerial plants may be planted anytime. Don’t plant too late in the fall, they might not have time to dig in before the winter. I very rarely recommend heat mats–they tend to bake the soil, bake the seeds, and the majority of complaints I get on nongermination include the information that the person has used heat mats. Heat comes down from the sun, not up from underneath the roots. Heat mats are fatal to many plantings.

      I see the 12 inch spacing. If I were to plant these outside soon, and water well, then would that be suitable? thanks
