I was wondering if anyone had any advice for moving an asparagus bed.
I'm afraid I started the asparagus without knowing much about it. I
have one two year old and 2 one year old plants that are doing fairly
well, but I didn't prepare the soil and they don't have much room
where they are. I would like to move them to a better raised bed, but
am unsure of the right time to attempt this. Does anyone have any
Thanks in advance.
If it's just the soil then ammend with compost and manure on top of
the asparagus bed. If it's a space issue then buy more crowns the
labor of trying to sift the crowns out of a bed will kill you.
Herbicide free grass clippings and woodchips a few inches deep make
good mulches for the beds.
I've also read to cover them good with horse manure in the winter for
mulch and for protection, this in addition to normal mulching in growing
I agree, if it's been there awhile, you may risk injuring yourself trying
to move it. If you feel you must, this is absolutely the wrong time of
year to attempt it (unless you're south of the equator).
