I'm Travis Steglich with Steglich Farm Supply Inc. in Bartlett, Texas. I am here with Expert Village to talk about propagation of an asparagus fern that is growing as a foundation plant around my building here. If you will notice that some of these berries are quite red, others are still green. The red ones are ready to be planted out. As a matter of fact, they just fall off when you touch them and these are the ones that you would plant. They take quite a while to germinate but the seeds are readily germinateable if you keep them in potting soil and you can grow your own asparagus fern for hanging baskets or foundation planted like this.
