Asparagus has potential in Wales as a niche crop for direct retail with wide appeal especially when seasonal, local and fresh. Asparagus is a perennial crop so once established expect many years of cropping in a roughly a 7 week window from late April to the 21st of June. The webinar will cover establishment and production including organic. Chris Creed from ADAS will be leading this webinar. He will be joined by Phil Handley from Mostyn Kitchen Garden and Adrian from Bellis Brother's Farm Shop who will be giving a grower’s perspective on the benefits and challenges of growing this crop.
