1 lb/454 g per acre; 500 roots per oz/28 g

CULTURE: Soak seed for 48 hours before sowing in 85°F/29°C water or in a wet paper towel. Direct seed into beds or the field, about May 20th. Sow seed 2 in./4 cm deep, in the bottom of a 4 in./l 0 cm open furrow. Space rows 18 in./46 cm apart, on well drained sandy land. Seed at 1 seed per in./25 mm. Mix radish seed with your seed - to mark the rows for cultivation. (Asparagus germinates slowly). Thin to 4 in./10 cm apart as soon as emergence is complete. Transplanting: Dig roots in April, discard weak ones (about 40%) and transplant in furrows - 9 in./23 cm apart- in rows 4 ft./122 cm apart. Fill in furrow gradually by cultivation. Do not harvest spears the first year, it weakens the plant. A straw mulch protects roots from winter - kill and controls weeds. Allow plants to make foliage each year. Cut foliage back after the fall frost. Harvest in April of the third year for 8 weeks.
