Winter hardy, frost-tolerant perennial that grows in full sun or light shade. Transplant established seedlings or 1 yr old crowns in the spring or fall into fertile, well-cultivated trenches 12" wide and 6-8" deep in rows at least 24" apart. Cover the crowns with about 2 inches of soil, as the ferns emerge and grow, gradually fill in the furrows with layers of rich soil and organic compost. Don't harvest the plants in the first year. The following year, only harvest for 2-3 weeks. For each year after, extend the harvest window by 1 or 2 weeks until harvesting for 8 weeks total. Add 2-3" of aged mulch after planting and each harvest season. Plant Seeds: 1/2" deep in 4-6" pots. Soil Temp: 65-80 F. Thin To/Mature Plant Spacing: 12" Companions: basil, marigold, nasturtium, parsley, tomato. Yield/100' row: 400 spears. Seed Viability: 3-4 years.
