I took over an allotment plot in October last year (2011) and have been busy clearing it bit by bit and planting my own veggies. Recently I noticed to my delight that I have 2 patches where asparagus has sprouted. The problem I have is that they are in completely the wrong place. They are growing up through the corner of an old fruit cage left behind by the previous tenant and are right at the edge of the plot almost on the path and boundary with the adjacent plots. I have managed to harvest about 24 good sized spears from the 2 patches and they have tasted amazing compared to the shop bought stuff I'm used to. So my question is can asparagus be moved or will moving them kill them? I don't what variety they are or how long they have been there for.
