    Default Asparagus in a tub?

    I am the only one who likes asparagus in myfamily so only need to grow a small ammount. I have access to plastic water barrels and wondered about growing maybe three crowns in half a plastic barrel? Would this work, and how many spears per year can I expect to get from one barrel?

    The conventional reply to this is no you can't, because asparagus has huge, deep roots with a spread of 5ft or more. However you might find this interesting:

    I was watching this when I was thinking of using containers and small beds at the ends of my paths https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoeBIw9YIrs but I finally decided on giving them a bed of their own see Alans Allotment: Asparagus
