Growing Asparagus

View the Asparagus page

29 Apr 22 james gray (Australia - temperate climate)
I planted green and purple asparagus about 2 years ago in a raised bed, 2 hours south of Perth in Lowden.. All the plants fronds are massive now, maybe 500mm high, falling over and hanging out of the bed itself, still very green and very healthy. I am wondering when do I trim the fronds off back to ground level and then fertilise with chook manure, etc, and mulch again?
