Notes

After the stems die back in early winter, cut them off at ground level and compost them. Remove weeds, apply compost and mulch, and your yearly maintenance is done.

Harvesting

Begin gathering spears the 2nd year after transplanting, cutting all spears that appear for a month in early spring. In subsequent years, harvest for 6 weeks each spring.

Troubleshooting

Cutting new shoots just below the surface often helps control problems with asparagus beetles, which lay their eggs on tender shoots near the soil line.
