The asparagus head is the shoot that comes out of the soil in spring time. You eat that part. To plant asparagus you need seeds or better you buy asparagus crowns (a bulb) usually about 6-9mtns old. Ask at your nursery or big gardening stores when will they have them in. You usually plant them in the early spring.
