Harvesting Period

A brilliant collection of modern, heavy cropping varieties, they will ensure a long period for harvesting the very best of top quality asparagus.

This all round collection includes the white Vittorioas, 2 green varieties and the appealing purple-spears, ideal for adding colour and flavour to any plate.

Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 45cm (18").

  • Asparagus collection comprises:
  • Asparagus Mondeo - Delicious spears with superb flavour and good disease resistance.
  • Asparagus Burgundine – Purplespears with a lower lignin content which can be eaten raw or lightly steamed.
  • Asparagus Gijnlim - A reliable variety producing delicious green spears with dark purple tips, from early on in the season.
  • Asparagus Vittorio - Developed primarily for the white asparagus market, where crops are earthed up by mounding soil around them to produce a tender, white spear.
  • .

    Prepare permanent asparagus beds well in advance of receiving your order so that the crowns can be planted without delay. Choose a sheltered position in full sun. Asparagus beds should be richly fertile and well drained. Remove all weeds, and incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil to improve soil structure and fertility. On cold, wet soils the addition of sharp sand or grit will help to improve drainage.

    Dig long trenches, 20cm (10") deep by 30cm (12") wide, and fill the bottom of the trench with 7cm (3") of well rotted manure or garden compost. Mound up soil on top of the manure to form a ridge along the length of the trench and place the asparagus crowns on top of ridge with their roots draped over the edge of the ridge at a distance of 45cm (18") apart. Cover the crowns with 7cm (3") of soil and firm them into their positions.

    Live Plants

    Organic Garden Catalogue strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.

    Non Standard Deliveries

    Unfortunately like many companies in our industry we are currently only able to supply orders to UK based customers, excluding those in Northern Ireland. We are committed to finding a way that we can resume or normal services again as soon as possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvience caused.

    Very Large items

    If ordering any large items marked large lorry items  a surcharge of £5 per item will be applied. These items are also not available to areas and postcodes shown under non standard deliveries. We may need to contact you regarding delivery so please provide a contact number with all orders.

    Prices include VAT where applicable.

    We reserve the right to contact you and advise an additional charge where necessary and are happy to quote for carriage of specific products to more remote areas. Some items may not be available to all areas.

    We reserve the right to revise any carriage charges in the event of carrier price increase or other unforeseen circumstances. We will always advise of the carriage charge before payment is taken.
