Asparagus thrives best in rich, slightly acidic, well-draining soils with good organic matter such as compost or rotted manure, which will improve soil structure while increasing nutrient content. Amending with 30% sand also promotes drainage and prevents root rot or fungal growth which could compromise health or production. Asparagus prefers full sun exposure but will still thrive provided it receives at least four to six hours of daily sunshine.
