Hi, I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I want to start growing Asparagus in my very small backyard to start with. I am looking for someone who can guide me. I am ready to pay consulting fees. Please advise. Best Regards, Ash

You can absolutely grow asparagus in Vancouver. Start with a year old crown, make sure there is no grass or other weeds in the space to compete with it and plant it deep - usually the crown will come with directions, but approximately 8 inches deep. you will be able to harvest a bit in a couple years and loads within 5-10. This is what worked for me in Saskatchewan so you shouldn't have any issues.

Work out your climate zone from the blue tab above and then check to see if you can plant asparagus in the calendar table at the top.

Asparagus can be notoriously difficult to harvest so I recommend going on the internet and asking your question, including your zone information.....you'll find countless sites that discuss growing this challenging vegetable.
