Help - my asparagus is growing back already!

Hi guys - I need some advice image I planted some asparagus this year and it grew well through the summer, produced beautiful ferns and then I cut it back a few weeks ago (probably mid October) and mulched the bed with a really good thick layer of compost. A few days later, it started sprouting again, I assume due to the fantastic autumn weather...? Now I have plants a good 18 inches tall again! What should I do now? Leave them or cut them back - or just ignore them??? image And advice gratefully received! 



  • It is healthy so I would leave it alone.

    Cut it and eat it. The frost will soon finish it off. I believe the commercial growers have had the same problem.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
