Re: How can you tell when asparagus is too old?
Thanks so much for the info. So I guess I should stop trying to kill it. I was feeling bad about that anyway since it clearly has a will to live. The bed is bigger than I would want and I’m not wild about the way it looks in “full fern.” Also, it gets red “berries.” Are these seeds and is it reseeding itself?
We do eat it quickly, but I haven’t fed it since we moved in so maybe that’s part of the problem. I like the idea of replacing thinner spots with new crowns. Any downside to mixing varieties?
