Central Florida Asparagus
Wondering if anyone else has had any success growing asparagus in this zone. I have been encouraged so far with my plants, imported from my last garden in Pennsylvania. They have grown at double the rate they grew in PA. I mowed them down this past January and the plants were large. They had been planted the prior June. I withheld water in July, planning to get them to go semi-dormant for a mowing in August. Storm Fay watered them more than I wanted though, and when I went to mow the patch, I had a small picking of spears for the wife and me. I mowed them, added fertilizer and about an inch of compost and now I am watering again. Plan to mow them over in January to if I can get a crop in Feb. or March.
