Asparagus Crowns


ASPARAGUS ‘GIJNLIM’ – £1.20 each or 5 for £5

‘GIJNLIM’ (RHS Award of Garden Merit) is an excellent, all-male variety which produces high yields of thin spears.

Cultivated as far back as the first century AD in ancient Rome, and coming to Britain from France in the 17th century, the asparagus season here in the UK is short…but delicious!

Ideal in a sunny position (tolerates light shade) and well-drained soil. If you feed it well and keep away the weeds (by hand, so as not to damage the delicate roots), you won’t have any problems growing tasty asparagus!
