  • Dig a trench 12 inches wide and 6-8 inches deep.  Place crowns in trench 15-24 inches apart on slight mounds of soil, making the crowns higher than the roots.  Spread out roots and cover with 2-3 inches of soil.  Firm down.  As plants grow, pull more soil into the trench until filled.  Harvest when spears are 5-9 inches tall by breaking off at soil level.
