Companion Planting: Asparagus

Companion planting is placing one plant near another to get better results, or making sure one plant grows far away from another because they might cause problems for each other.

If you are starting to plant asparagus now, here's what goes well with it:

  • parsley

  • basil

  • tomatoes

Remember - never cut asparagus spears from the first year, and only a couple in the second and a few more in the third. The fourth year - have at it! As for the foliage, never cut it until the Fall because that provides the nourishment for next year's crop of spears.
