I have just purchased some asparagus crowns and read that it is best to wait until at least August/ September to plant them. Should I keep the crowns moist in the meantime or let them dry out?

When you bought them they should have been dry, leave them the way they are. They are in a dormancy state over winter. A tip, don't buy things until it is time to plant.
