Growing Asparagus

i have cut back my asparagus when it died back, about 3 weeks ago. I covered it with manure and compost and it has begun to grow again. The new stalks are about 15 - 20 cms already but only pencil thin. I really want to harvest white asparagus, should i mound the soil up over the asparagus now? or should i let it just grow?

Plant white asparagus if you want white. If plant is old you could cut the spears - thin ones. If plant is 1-2 years old could let the thin spears grow. Read up about male and female asparagus.
