I am confused on the spacing for asparagus. Mel says either one or four per square, but the package says space 12 inches apart. How do I plant four per square? Please help.

most instructions are based on row style gardening
Square foot gardening is based on raised bed improved soil gardening
Mel has been doing SFG for a long time and wrote his first book about it in 1981, 31 years of experience after knowing enough to write his first book should tell us if 4 per square works, do it.
draw a cross in the box and that is your spacing. After that follow his instructions on lanting asparagus and have patience, you have to let an asparagus bed develop for a few years, but they are well worth it.
I love to bring a bucket of cold water out and the first 6 or 7 sprouts get washed and popped in the mouth. nothing is as good as fresh raw asparagus while working in the garden Asparagus Spacing 3170584802

Love asparagus and always blamed myself for not planting it "last year." Well, this year I put in 9 plants in the middle 4 squares of a 4x4 SFG with the idea that eventually these plants will eventually expand to fill the entire area. BTW, purchased them at Lowes for $3.98 per three pack. Have fun Very Happy

Funny thing, I passed some 2 foot high asparagus plants yesterday on my way to the store. I think someone forgot they were there. I wish I had had my camera handy.
