An excellent variety with bright green spears and deep purple tips that produces an exceptionally high yield. The crowns are best planted between March and May, and though a few spears can be cut the following year, it is best left for two years so that it can grow into a strong plant. Connover's Colossal has been awarded an Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society.Garden care: Plant crowns in atrench that is 30cm (12in) wide by 20cm (8in) deep with a central ridge that is 10cm (4in) high. Place the crown on the ridge, spreading the roots out evenly and cover with soil. Harvest the spears in mid-spring when they are about 15cm (6in) tall and fairly thick.
