How to Winter Asparagus – Harvesting Tips

How to winter asparagus is a question I get asked quite frequently. Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the way it tastes when it’s young and crisp. And I also love how it tastes cold.

Asparagus comes in two forms. You can grow it from the ground up, as a snap root, or you can grow it as a rhizome. Those that grew up from the ground up have a more slender rhizome, while those that came from the wall are larger.

So, how to winter asparagus for growing indoors? The best time to plant it is during late summer, or fall. This is true of both snap and rhizome asparagus. In either case, the asparagus needs to have good drainage. If you don’t have good drainage, then your asparagus probably won’t be successful, no matter how well you grow it.

As for pruning, don’t do it too often. Your asparagus should only need trimmed about once every couple of years, if at all. Trim it close to the ground instead of growing it up. The reason for this is so that it’s easy to cut away any unwanted, sick or damaged leaves. This is an important step to learning how to winter asparagus, since any leaves left on the plant will just grow back into the ground as new leaves take over.

Asparagus grows in a field in northwestern Switzerland during the springtime.

When the asparagus has been properly pruned, make sure you remove all of the excess or dead leaves. This also makes it easier to harvest. Once you have removed them, remove any hanging or broken wires, and any other items that could get tangled up in the asparagus. You can now put the asparagus in a plastic bag and secure it for future use.

How to winter asparagus really depends on how much, if any, sunlight your asparagus gets during the winter months. Asparagus requires lots of sunlight, so the easiest way to do this is by putting your asparagus pots in a shaded area. You can also put it in an enclosed area if you want more sun. Just remember that the shorter the pots, the more light they will receive. It’s kind of like growing grape vines in bottles!

Now that you know how to winter asparagus, you might be ready to start growing it in your garden! It’s a very easy vegetable to grow, so you shouldn’t have any problems. Just make sure you learn how to winter asparagus properly the first time.

Winter doesn’t have to ruin your spring garden just because you didn’t summer! With the right techniques and a little know how, you can have asparagus in winter, and enjoy it all year long!

So how to winter asparagus is pretty simple actually. The first thing you need to know when learning how to winter asparagus is that you don’t want it growing directly on the ground. Because asparagus requires a deep root system to thrive, it needs to be in an underground container. This can be any container, but make sure it has good drainage and is made of a durable material. The soil in the container should drain easily, and it should be relatively dry.

You want to make sure that the container is sealed before you put asparagus in it, because it doesn’t take much water to actually drown the roots. As the asparagus starts to mature, it may start to rain. That is okay, because the roots will still need to absorb water. If you keep the roots moist they will continue to grow strong, and you don’t have to worry about them being destroyed by rain.

After the asparagus roots are in the soil they will start to go a little bit green. This is because the asparagus is absorbing water, and the sugars in the soil will start to turn brown. If you see this happening it is a sign that the asparagus is now ready to be harvested. You should remove the asparagus from the container, and rinse the roots well with clean water. Dry the roots on a wire mesh surface and then place them in your garden.

Now that you know how to winter asparagus you should be ready to harvest it. When the asparagus starts to turn brown, and starts to wilt, the asparagus is ready for pick. Take the picked stems and put them in a tupperware or a small dish. Any leaves that you don’t use should be removed, and any liquid that collects should be drained away immediately.
