  • Asparagus - Argenteuil Plant


    (Asparagus officinalis) - Certified Organic Plant - Grown at Greenpatch Organic Seeds

    Argenteuil asparagus is a attractive French heirloom perennial dating back as late as the 1800's, producing 2cm thick white-green spears with purple tinted tips reaching 15cm or larger, harvest after 2 years. Asparagus is excellent when eaten fresh, steamed or used in various baked and stirfry dishes. Argenteuil is a known early producer when compared to other varieties. 

    Growing Conditions & Care:

    Asparagus is a long lived perennial, take time to prepare your soil in advance, a fertile soil containing compost and manure is recommended, along with trace elements and minerals to promote healthy root production. Asparagus will not tolerate constant moisture, well drained soil is a must. Preferred Ph. ranges from 6.5 - 7.0. You will begin to harvest small spears two years from planting and expect a consistent harvest in the years to follow. Harvest spears in late spring right through the summer months. Begin to harvest spears at 10cm - 15cm in height, cut below ground level to maximize your harvest. In late Autumn to early winter the plant will become dormant, now is the time to prune all growth down to ground level and mulch your plant, this will help with the following crop and promote healthy new growth.


    It has been noted that Asparagus may contain medicinal and healing properties, with certain varieties being used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is a common vegetable with a nutty refreshing flavour.

    Note: Plants will be dorment during winter months.
