Does anyone have experience with growing asparagus from seed. I planted them 4 weeks ago, have kept them moist and warm in a greenhouse, but thus far have one 1cm sprout. I was about to empty the tray out when I spotted it. Do the seeds need any special treatment to germinate? Or perhaps they just take a long time? Or need to be planted earlier in spring?
Any advice welcome.
I grow asparagus from seed every year off my own plants (pacific Purple),about the only thing they need is the seed raising mix needs to be 18Cdeg +,how old is the seed ??Megan- my seed doesn't take long to germinate at all
it is easy to germinate from seed. 4 weeks is not a long time for any seed. Hang on to them
laine, I have an oldcbut excellent book on seed raising. I can look up asparagus when i get back from holiday in the new year.
Still no sign and any more seedlings so I think I will try Megans trick in a Ziplock bag with a new batch.
