Fresh asparagus – is there a more delicious way to welcome Spring? We think not! Asparagus with butter and lemon, roasted asparagus with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, asparagus with pasta … and have you ever eaten raw baby asparagus? It’s SO good. Asparagus is astonishingly easy to grow in the Midwest – and once planted, it continues to produce for up to 20 years. This perennial vegetable needs a little extra love and understanding to prepare the soil and to continue growing abundantly, so it’s worth the effort to do the research. The instructor will share her own experience so you can grow spectacular spears of asparagus! We’ll cover the basics: > Growing from seed vs. crowns > Where to grow asparagus in the garden – and why it matters > Best cultivars for Midwest gardens – and some to avoid > Soil preparation – amendments and fertilizers > Pest, disease, and weeding solutions > How and when to harvest your asparagus > Yearly maintenance to keep your asparagus growing better - year after year! This class will be offered at two different times. As you register, please scroll through the calendar to choose your desired date: > Tuesday, March 19, at 7:00 - 8:00 pm > Wednesday, April 3, at 7:00 - 8:00 pm ** SPECIAL OFFER! Buy 10 or more 'Millennium' asparagus crowns from CGS and you can attend this class for FREE! Buy your bareroot asparagus crowns FIRST (at and we'll send you the class link.
