Asparagus in a Container

10 years ago

I've been growing vegetables for about 8 years and have been really wanting to grow asparagus.

Because I rent and have limited space, I have been able to control myself and have not planted it.

But I was ordering some other stuff and the deal was too good, so I broke down and bought some.

So, even though I might be able to find some space in the ground, I would prefer to plant in a container.

I searched for info on growing asparagus in a container, but only found a couple hits.

Has anyone here done this?

I know they need a deep trench, but I seem to have narrow and deep containers, or wide and shallow ones.

What type of container (short of a half barrel) might give me my best shot at some success.

Even if it is just a few spears (three years from now!!!)
