Best place to order asparagus crowns and go Jersey or Washington?

SarahInMinneapolis | Jan 26, 2013 08:29 PM

I need to start revitalizing a 30-year-old asparagus bed this spring. I've been checking out the crowns available at big box retailers the last few years and none of them look very good. Can anyone recommend a good place to order them online?

Also, I'm sure this bed was planted with Martha or Mary Washington. After a great deal of research, I'm thinking Jersey Giant or Jersey Supreme. The latter are recommended by Ag Extension at Iowa, but U of Minn Ag Extension seems to be stuck on the Washingtons.

Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated!
