In the spring of 2010 we ordered some Mary Washington asparagus seeds from Baker Creek with the intention of getting some homegrown asparagus to munch on a few years down the road. We started the seed in seed starter flats  that you can buy at the local hardware store, garden supply, or big box stores. We used a pre-mixed starter mix and sowed the seeds, one per cell, about 1/2 inch deep. It was several weeks before the sprouts popped up and we took the dome off to allow for air flow.
