How to sow and care for F1 Portlim Asparagus
It takes a lot of labour to grow asparagus. The asparagus should be planted as mature ferns on the north or east side of the garden so they don't shade other vegetables. Fertile soil is necessary to grow asparagus. If it has not already been done, fertilize the soil with lime.
You may sow seeds outdoors in seedbeds from March to early May or indoors in trays or pots after soaking them in water for 24 hours. You should thin out plants that are strong enough to handle the stress.
After its seed is sown, asparagus can grow for three years. Crowns that are one year old require two years of growth before they can be harvested, and those that are two years old require only one year. During your first year of spear harvesting, limit your harvest to 10 days.
After that, asparagus will grow stronger and provide you with higher yields. During the second year, you may harvest asparagus for two weeks. In the following weeks, you can harvest asparagus for six weeks. Once the spears begin to thin, you can stop cutting them.
