You can grow asparagus by seed or vegetative way. Asparagus is a dioecious culture: male plants have the highest productivity, so for planting perennial plantations it is necessary to use them, and female plants should be rejected.
The maximum yield can be collected when growing asparagus in a seedling manner. Before sowing, soak the seeds for two to three days in warm water, then dry and sow to a depth of 3 cm in a row. After 2-3 weeks, the first shoots will appear that need to be watered, loosened, removed weeds and fed with phosphorus-potassium fertilizers, slurry or bird droppings.The plant should be prepared for frosts - cut 10 cm from the ground, pile up the rhizome with soil, and in the fall cover with a humus ball.
After two years, seedlings can be dug and transplanted into a prepared and enriched place with organic mixture.

The fact is that the green heads of the shoots are more rough and bitter in taste, and without access to light, they turn white and tender. With the appearance of heads on the surface of the ridge, the soil must be otgresti, and the shoots carefully cut off to avoid damage to the rhizome. After harvesting, do not forget to perform hilling again.
