Planting roots speeds up harvest by at least 1 to 2 years.  Plant roots shortly after receiving them in a well prepared, deeply dug, fertilized bed with plenty of organic matter.  Prefer light, loose soil.  Set roots in trenched rows 12 inches apart, rows 3 to 5 feet apart.  Trench should be 6 inches deep.  Cover roots with 2 inches of soil.  Fill in the trench as asparagus grows.  Keep moist.  Fertilize again the next spring.  Begin harvest in 2 to 3 years. Sorry, no shipments to AZ, HI, or CA.
