ASPARAGUS Mary Washington & Argenteuil

30 Seeds (15 seeds of each variety)

(Asparagus Officinalis)

Asparagus Argeneuil (V-121) variety is a must for the asparagus lover. An old traditional heirloom, this gourmet variety is highly esteemed in Europe for its delicious white stems with rose-coloured buds that can be blanched white.

It is early producing, flavoursome and heat tolerant. Unlike many other asparagus varieties, which do not offer a decent harvest until the third year when grown from seed, Argenteuil will give a good yield in the second year. It can adapt to a wide variety of well-draining soils and is quite heat tolerant.

Blanching will also make the stems pure white without the tip, great for an exotic dish.


Asparagus Mary Washington (V-123) is a perennial vegetable. It can be served hot, with drawn butter; cold, in a salad; in soups; and sandwich filling or flavouring. This is a great table favourite that produces great tender shoots aside from loads of dishes.

I have never grown asparagus before.We have just built a greenhouse, so I was interested to try new things. I have planted both these sets of seeds. It took 3 weeks but they have all come up. I have planted them in deep pots , so next season hopefully I will have the corns & I can plant them into the garden. Very pleased thus far with the progress. Thank you
