To grow good Asparagus the soil needs to be:

  • well drained - so your light soil is ideal here
  • with water holding capacity - add well rotted farm yard manure - this will provide nutrients as well as hold on to the water
  • pH of 6.5 to 7.5 - add lime if too acidic
  • good depth - used to be grown in mounds (beds), but raised deep beds are ideal

Asparagus beds stay down for 15 or 20 years, so it is worth getting the soil right before you start.
