When it gets down to the specifics there are some discrepancies in how sources say to plant asparagus. These differences are really rather minor. If you have the room, spacing on the high end (18 inches) works. Close spacing. also works but may be more trouble down the line. Fertilizer should be based on a soil test. The links below all do a good job at showing how to plant asparagus;
