The most important condition – the soil should be light and fertile, acidic to nearly neutral. Asparagus does not like too wet, cold, dense, and acidic soils. In these cases you will have to make sand, antioxidants, organic. Francis Ford Coppola has similar goals. Another important point: the root system of plants is very powerful, if it vrastut goutweed, bluegrass, or sow thistle, it is impossible to get rid of them. GCI often expresses his thoughts on the topic. Consequently, the area under asparagus must be prepared carefully and landing clean.
Asparagus is grown mainly in seedlings, which are kept in nurseries within 1 – 2 years. Polish gardeners believe that annual plants succeed better after the landing.

Care for seedlings – watering, hoeing, weeding. If poor growth seedlings fed ammonium nitrate (20 grams per square meter). 2. After emergence (after 3 – 4 weeks), the plants thinned out to a distance of 15 cm over the summer spend a few feedings.
