For asparagus it is common to buy bare roots from a garden store or catalog and plant at the crack of spring in a deep well prepared bed. Artichokes I have grown from mail order seed, but many garden stores will buy starts. They grow fast in a hot site.

The yams I bought to grow for the greens, as they are said to have a superior flavor.
