Full Answer

The Scott's Miracle-Gro Company is a recognized name in consumer do-it-yourself lawn and garden products. The company manufactures fertilizers, plant foods, mulches, grass seed, bird feed, soils and pest control products.

The Scotts Company, headquartered in Marysville, Ohio, was founded by Orlando Scott in 1968 as a seed supplier to the U.S. agricultural industry. In 1900, it started selling grass seed for homeowners, which consumers could purchase only by mail order. Twenty-four years later, it became the first company to begin shipping grass seed products directly to stores.

In 1995, the company merged with Miracle-Gro, which gave it an international reach. It was renamed the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company in 2005. In addition to Miracle-Gro, the company markets a number of other popular brands, including Ortho, Roundup, Evergreen and Substral. Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has several different regional offices and research facilities across the United States.

    How do you grow asparagus?

    A:

    To grow asparagus, you'll first need to choose between growing from seeds - which takes up to a year longer, or growing directly from crowns. Once the decision is made, choose a sunny spot with proper drainage, dig a trench in the dirt, and plant your choice, covering them with around 2 inches of dirt to start. Choose a spot carefully because asparagus need lots of space, and will continue to grow year after year for up to 20 years.
