Asparagus purple can be quickly grown from seeds. In the spring, the seeds are planted relatively early. Make sure that the seeds are soaked in water for a day or two in advance to have the best chance of germinating. Approximately 30cm apart, sow asparagus seed thinly in rows of 2 to 5cm depth. Maintain a moist seedbed by regularly watering them. You can thin Purple Asparagus seedlings approximately 5cm apart once the seedlings are large enough after waiting a few weeks.


Full sun is very conducive to the growth of Pacific Asparagus. So tall plants don't shade your garden during the summer; place them on the west or north-facing slope. Set the distance between 30 and 50 cm. Almost all asparagus varieties require nutrient-rich, well-drained soil to grow successfully. About three years are needed for Purple Asparagus to reach total productivity. Be patient so that you can achieve your goal. Before harvesting a one-year-old crown, it must be grown for two years. In other words, it's easy, but you have to be patient with it.
