Hey, welcome back munty, you may have noticed we've missed ya!!!!

4,000 bunches???? Wow, I'd like some asparagus, but as we never seem to stay anywhere long enough to harvest them, well.... it's not worth planting any!!!!!

Welcome back Muntjac !  :)
Growing all that asparagus, I will be picking your brains, we are preparing a large bed to plant next year.

This year we are forking out weeds and repeating this again and again , cos we dont like weedkillers.

come the autumn should we dig in some manure .

Where's the best place to get hold of plants ?

thanks CD :)

I planted a new asparagus bed two months ago...not a * thing has come up.

Should I try again?
