Asparagus seedlings...now what?
In early February I sowed a packet (25 seeds) of Mary Washington into standard seed starting mix in the usual little cell thingies. In 10 days, I had some seedlings, now about 3/4 are germinated and poking up. Weirdly, a few have sprouted two little "sticks" from one seed (the tallest thus far is about 6 inches high and thinner than thin spaghetti).
Spending entirely too much time on the Internet due to this year's fierce smow blasts here in the Hudson Valley, I've come across advice that says to remove the germination tray from warmth and direct sunlight once seedlings show up, and transfer them of a cooler (55 to 65 degrees F), bright-but-not-sunny location.
This seems counter-intuitive to me. I would think that they still need pretty sunny surroundings, no?
