Asparagus Spring Care

Posted Feb 28 2011 2:35pm

Spring care of the asparagus bed involves weeding and feeding.

Weeding:

  • spray the asparagus bed with glyphosate (Roundup) in early spring (as long as no asparagus have emerged).
  • after a few days, when all weeds are dead, cover the bed with mulch to stop more weeds growing.
  • keep the bed weed free by hand weeding – do not hoe because asparagus are shallow rooting.

Feeding:

  • Feed asparagus with a general purpose fertiliser in mid-March

Giving the asparagus bed proper care in the spring will allow the asparagus to fruit to its full potential.
