Please access the following asparagus fact sheet.

This provides the latest information on how to successfully grow asparagus in the home vegetable garden in Utah. It also suggests varieties. Not all varieties may be available locally but many retailers do have roots for planting. They sell out fast so don't delay in purchasing them. Most of the Jersey varieties preform very well in Utah conditions.

Good Luck.
