My 3 year old asparagus hardly appeared at all last year due to the poor weather.  I live near Edinburgh.  Does anyone know if it is likely to come back this year?

Thanks

Thanks for replying. Yes it had a small crop (it being only in second year) but all the plants did produce.

Fingers crossed it'll make a reappearance - I find my fingers get crossed a lot in gardening - last year's weather was so appalling - hopefully when (if) the soil warms up this year it should make a reappearance - obviously don't over-crop if it's still being a bit shy.

You've started me thinking about buttery asparagus now - apparently it's just arrived in the markets in Cyprus - jealous?  Moi?  Looking at the weather today - yes!!!

Yes Dove I thought that looking at the news tonight. But we don't have their financial problems - do we???

Our asparagus crop was definitely reasonable last year - not bad, not excesive - maybe depends where in the country you are. Hang on in there lizathome - it's ealy days!
