Asparagus spears grow from a crown that is planted about a foot deep in sandy soils. An asparagus planting is usually not harvested for the first 3 years after the crowns are planted allowing the crown to develop a strong fibrous root system. A well cared for asparagus planting will generally produce for about 15 years without being replanted. Also, the larger the diameter, the better the quality.
