Asparagus ‘Gijnlim’ is a vegetable that grows in green spears with deep purple tips.
This vegetable is perfect hot or cold; grill on the BBQ with fresh garlic, or chop into a fresh summer salad.
Producing a high yield, these stalks are best planted between March and May. A few spears can be harvested the following year, but it is best to leave them for two or even three years to develop a robust crown of Asparagus.
The best spot for them to grow is in full sun, with shelter from high winds, in well-prepared soil with good drainage. If the soil is heavy or wet, the Asapargus can be grown in a raised bed.
