Asparagus Red Berries

I don't know asparagus but I do know the principles of  cultivars and their seeds. Most asparagus plants are cultivars. What you get from a seed is will be different from the parent. It may be better, or worse, could be anything. 

Having never tried it, I'd sow some in pots outside now to chill, and some I'd remove the berry part, dry off the seed to grow in spring

Air Layering - Is this progress?

It can do harm Niscars, it has. Fungus, mould, call it anything you like is not a good sign. Laurel is much inclined to die back from any damage and start going yellow, then brown edged, then die. I would cut back the branches that have done this to well below the damage. Ground level would be best.

Pots going green!
