Q.How long does it take for my Asparagus to come up?

I followed the directions on the package and it’s been two weeks. Nothing is coming up at all. Should I just start all over? I did some reading and it said that the roots should have been damp. But they weren’t, in the package.

You can gently dig down and check the roots. If they are pliable still, then they are still alive. If they are brittle, it is dead and you will need to start over.

You also need to make sure that you are providing plenty of water. The plant will need lots of water until it becomes established.
