Steven   sunflowers are frost tender so shouldn't really go out until the end of May/beginning of June, depending on where you are and when your last frost usually is.    

That being said I've started some off outside in a very sheltered spot.

Can you post a picture of it for us?

And another thing, you don't harvest asparagus until the third year after planting the crowns - it really is a long term investment.  I hope that was clear when you bought the crowns.
