Asparagus Connover`s Colossal Seeds
Info: The asparagus variety Connover`s Colossal, developed in Long Island, New York in 1873, is one of the world`s most popular varieties. It is considered particularly precocious and stands out from the ground sooner than any other variety. The strong, green bars are characterized by their special taste. Also, this asparagus should not be harvested before the third year. After this time, he produces 15-20 years of great, fresh vegetables.Sowing & cultivation: As a location, the asparagus prefers a sunny spot. He also tolerates partial shade very well. The soil should be a well-drained, neutral soil. The seeds are best sowed in a sowing depth of 1cm in loose soil. In the following year, the seedlings are planted at a distance of 40cm and the roots covered with a 5cm thick layer of soil. When the first shoots show up, soil should be topped up. After the first harvest, compost or fertilizer can be incorporated. This helps to strengthen the plants.
