Hi!
I want to order some asparagus bare root plants, but it's January and I'm in Zone 7b.  There are freezing days ahead and we won't even start the general warm-up until March.

But if I wait too late to order, they will be sold out.

So, how long can I delay planting bare root asparagus?  I'm looking at some Jersey Giants on Amazon.

Thanks!

If the plants are fully dormant and your soil is not frozen you can plant them as soon as you get them.  You could also pot them up and put them in your garage shed or some place similar.  Better though would be to order from a garden catalogue where they will wait to ship them until the correct time of year.
 
I've got no option but to sell you all for scientific experiments. Or a tiny ad:
