Post  DirtHappy 4/15/2010, 11:18 am

Hello All,

I'm brand new to this site ... live in eastern CT. We are transforming our vegetable gardens into raised beds and I am so glad I found this site! I've never grown asparagus, but we love and eat a lot of it. So, I'm going to try.

Questions: Has anyone tried asparagus in their sfg? If so, how many plants cand I put into a square foot? Also, I read on one of these pages that someone planted blueberries in an sfg. Does anyone know anything about that as I'm planting both blueberry and blackberry bushes this year and never thought about putting them in a raised bed.

Thanks so much for your help. I'm looking forward to learning from everyone.

Asparagus and SFG 396615 to the Forums DirtHappy! Congratulations on converting to SFG! You will be soooo happy.

I'm sorry no one has replied to your post yet. I don't have any experience with asparagus in the SFG but I intend to hopefully next year. Your Regional Host, Martha, should respond soon.

In the meantime, if you post this in the General Forum you may get the attention of lots of asparagus growers.

Best of luck.

Asparagus and SFG 396615 I have grown asparagus in a big clay pot for 5 years now. I started off with 4 crowns planted. I don't get a large crop obviously, but the pot produces enough for me to get 5 or 6 meal sized batches during the cutting period, and since I'm the only one in my family that eats this wonderful vegetable thats ok.. My husband is in the process of building me several 2 x 8 beds and I'm hoping to devote at least half of one to a permanent asparagus bed.. Good Luck !!

Asparagus and SFG Empty oops - I forgot your blueberry question!

Post  martha 4/17/2010, 4:04 pm

on another thread, Tim Wardell (you'll get to know him) suggested starting with lowbush varieties that can be grown in Mel's Mix in pots. One of the problems with SFG and blueberries is that they really do need a specific PH - must be above 5.5.

What types were you planning on?

I made a 1x1x6" box for asparagus! I hope to fit at least 8 crowns in it. I love it and it freezes well. I hope you great success as that should add to mine! Keep us informed!

Asparagus and SFG Empty Thank You

Post  DirtHappy 4/18/2010, 3:53 pm

Thank you everyone so much for your responses. I don't know what type of blueberries or blackberries yet. Spring came much too fast and I haven't gotten that far!! Hopefully we'll get all the beds built next weekend and ready for planting. We doing two 4x4 beds, one 6x2 bed, and four 2x4 beds.

We planted asparagus in four squares of one of our SFG. They are second year crowns, and they are coming up nicely.
