How To Plant Asparagus

Question From: R. Coleman - MISSOURI
Q: how do I plant asparagus. I already bought the plants. Didn;t expect them to look so strange. Dont know if I lay them horizontal to plant, or upright with roots to bottom or spread out the little runners or what????? Can not find answer on google.

A: I googled :"how to plant asparagus crowns' and came up with many good entries that include photos and even videos. I would try again. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
