I planted asparagus for the first time last year and all six plants are doing well. The instructions were to pick no more than two spears from each plant next year so I am looking forward to that. I agree with Angie W the delicate fronds look so good with sturdy summer flowers - and a little piece behind a pink makes a perfect buttonhole. I believe now is the time to give the bed a mulch of well-rotted manure. I had asparagus in a restaurant the other day and, being out of season it was tough so, like all veg. better to eat it in season, in April, May.
