In the past we have talked about growing asparagus in your garden, which is inself pretty easy to do. The hard part is waiting for your asparagus to mature. Today I discovered how to grow asparagus in containers.

If you do a quick search online, most people will tell you that it is not possible to grow asparagus in containers. However I found someone who successfully managed to grow theirs and she even has proof in pictures.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • asparagus crowns
  • potting soil
  • large container
  • organic fertilizer

Prepare your container for planting as you would for any other plant. She recommends you use a really large pot as the the roots will grow out of smaller ones. I suppose this is why other people grow theirs in old bath tubs.

Keep your asparagus well watered and in a location that recieves enough sun light. Initially your asparagus will fern out and even hang out of the pot. You will start to see a few stalks, however you have to be very patient as you wait for the larger stalks.
