I started some asparagus from seed, and in the 5 foot by 3 foot area that i planted i might have 10-15 seedlings max, My question is, does one asparagus plant only ever have one shoot or do more shoots come up from the roots in later years?
thanks.

Thank you that is good to know. I know it will take a few years to produce eating size shoots, but it will be worth it.

Planted from crowns I think they saw two years usually till you harvest them unless the crowns are old. My garden isn't so good must have taken us 5 years but been getting it ever since then. We love asparagus.

15 plants should be enough for a family. I planted 30 and its way too much for us. I mean waaaay too much. I give it away all summer. in 4-5 years you'll have all you could ever want.
