Continually mowing it will deal with it.

Primrose leaves

But do remember that plants have as many leaves as they need. You are doing the plant no favours if you cut off their leaves.

By all means split up the clumps. Water them well until they are established when you replant.

The asparagus grows from the crown. The crown expands over time. The asparagus don't always come up straight, that's why hand-weeding is recommended.

Gardeners have clamoured for years for peat-free compost, and this is the result.

NewBoy, why does it matter? Hand weeding is usually the best option for asparagus beds or apply a mulch. Hoeing is usually a no-no.

You only have to look in magazines to see how minimalist some people want their lives and environment. Not for me however!
