Spotted 1 spear peeping through this morning, I did mulch the bed heavily in the autumn, : and yes I need to weed the patch too.

No sign of anything here.  A bit worried as the ground is completely saturated. Fingers crossed.

Wet bed here in Hampshire no sign of spears. Only plus for me is if they build on my allotments as planned I canít move them anyway Iím afraid 😟!! Hope yours donít object to the soggy ground Anne.

Great excitement two spears emerging today.
Checked previous discussion in 2015 (see below) my first spear emerged on 15th April so Iím actually ahead by a whole day. Have to see what the threatened rain does to the crop at present.

The same here!!!
The other end of the bed is drawing a blank though.  Pleased that some have survived at least.

Nothing showing yet in the Plot 13 asparagus bed... have so far resisted the urge to poke around below the surface!
