Asparagus is a long-lived perennial vegetable crop.
Each plant can be productive for 15 or more years if given proper care.
Asparagus will grow in most any soil as long as it has good drainage. Asparagus doesn’t like to have wet feet; it leads to root rot.
An ideal pH of 6.5 to 7.5 will give you good results; it will not tolerate a pH under 6.0.
