It took some time but it was worth the wait
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.
