asparagus
« on: January 02, 2012, 08:09 »
hello
We planted asparagus for the first time last spring and we were told to cut it down in the autumn when it turned yellow, which it  hasn't really done! so any advice on should we cut it down now?

Hi, welcome to the forums!

A very recent thread on this subject here:

http://chat.allotment-garden.org/index.php?topic=86967.msg971060#msg971060
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

thanks for that link, on balance it looks OK to leave until spring to cut down and fertilise them then.
Thanks again

As long as they are well supported that will be OK. The wind can rock them and push them over which may expose the new shoots to the weather.

I would cut them now and get the bed tidy.
