Plant Asparagus ‘Gijnlim’ in spring. Ideally in from March to May. Grow them in the sun and shelter them from the wind. The soil should be rich, add a lot of compost and manure. It is important that it is well-drained. Use a fertilizer during the growing season.

Weed the beds. Let the first spears grow and turn into feathery stems throughout the summer. Not cutting the spears in the second year will produce the best results.

About Online Flower Garden & Dino

I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
