How Many Asparagus Can Be Planted Per Square Foot?

Traditional row spacing for asparagus crowns is 9 to 12 inches apart in a 12- to 18-inch-wide trench. In a square foot garden, each 12-inch square can hold two asparagus crowns. Placing each crown 1 1/2 inches from a square's edge will separate them by 9 inches.
