Asparagus in a container?

12 years ago

I garden entirely in containers due to the bindweed and pretty much lousy location of any sunny spots in our yard. I was hoping to do a few asparagus plants, but I don't know if that would be pushing my luck too far. I use mostly Garden Patch Grow Boxes, very similar to Earth Boxes in size and design--and depth of soil.

Am I crazy for even contemplating asparagus in a container? From what I have read, the crowns need to be pretty deeply planted, but I would probably go a little more shallow in containers...

Please, give me your 2-cents worth!
