I have been trying to grow Asparagus plant from seeds and so far i haven't succeed in doing so. I know that many people would say why not simply buy asparagus root stock which will start budding when planted, but for me i like the challenge of growing any plant from seeds. This is the soul of a true gardener. Although the growing season is short in Canada but the time and effort spent on trying to grow plant from seeds is well worth it. Besides, a lot of the departmental stores such as Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, Rona, Canadian tire does not seem to sell Asparagus seedlings. They only sell seeds but correct me if i am wrong.
I have used the paper towel method in which the Asparagus seeds was placed into the wet paper towel and the whole thing is then placed into a sealed zip lock bag or air tight container. I waited for about a month and did not get any result and so i threw away those seeds. I have heard that it is quite hard to grow Asparagus from seeds. Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.
