I bought this asparagus about a month ago in a moment of delusion. Then when I got it home realized why this Spring I had decided against asparagus. It needs to stay put in the same spot for years. In my little plot and needing to rotate year to year there just wasn't a spot. But we love asparagus and I got carried away. I am going to see how well it does in a container. Some have said that asparagus does just fine in container. I found this container for free at a local garden center ready to be thrown away so after a month the asparagus finally gets a home that is about 6 times larger than its previous one. We will see how it goes.
