January 31, 2012 January 31, 2012 <![CDATA[Zone 9 Asparagus]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/461/zone-9-asparagus I'm looking through the current Burpee catalogue, and I'm wondering if anyone has successfully grown the Mary Washington heirloom asparagus in Zone 9, or more specifically, Houston. I'd really love to, but if it'll do poorly I don't know if I want to risk it.

<![CDATA[solidago fireworks grass]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/635/solidago-fireworks-grass I need some help please with the above.  I planted them but they look pretty sickly.  The leaves are turning yellowish.  I used the normal soil additives that are good for zone 5 and I watered them from the bottom.  These plants were just purchased from Burpee.  Any help that you can give me would be appreciated.  Oh and by the way the bul bs that I purchased for my raised bed garden are all doing very well.  I am very pleased with the bulbs I purchased.

 

Thanks

<![CDATA[Purple Asaparagus]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/459/purple-asaparagus What is different about purple asparagus other than the color?  Is it easier to grow?  Does it taste better?
