Enjoy the exciting traits of modern and vigorous asparagus Guelph Eclipse, bred for home-growing. Breeders have come up with this well-performing variety that gives you early harvests in spring, ready for picking weeks earlier than other asparagus varieties.

Guelph Eclipse is particularly prolific and gives you lots of spears with coveted tight tips and a substantial, thick diameter. This variety is particularly precocious so you can expect yearly harvests from as early as mid-spring.

We recommend that you plant the crowns 30-45cm apart in 15cm (6in) deep ditches in spring. Allow your plants to put down a good root system in the first year. You can then look forward to the thick stems breaking through the soil, ready for picking from the second year.
