Mary Washington Asparagus is one of the oldest asparagus Heirlooms in the USA. It is all Heirloom and Non-GMO. It will give you loads of tender shoots year after year once you get them going; they will last 7 to 10 years and grow in zones 3 to 9. Be sure to start really early and transplant. Under most conditions, it will produce the second year--unless you fool the plant into thinking it has been though a winter the same way you do artichokes in zone 6. We harvest late July into August, and with this variety if we have a late snow we will get two harvests the same season. To our farmers market friends, selling starters from seeds are really easy and your customers will thank you. Happy growing!!!
Asparagus is a perennial which means it comes back for many years make sure you plant it in it's forever home
Plant early plant often
