Hi there. I'm hoping someone here will be able to answer my question:
I planted 5 asparagus crowns in April. Nice, well brought up ones, from a reputable company. They were given their very own bed, devoid of weeds and other undesirable neighbors, dug to perfection, containing only the richest of soil and well-composted manure. I watered them whenever the bed looked uncomfortably dry. I did everything except whisper sweet nothings to them.
Where'd they go?? Will they sprout this year? Have I done something to offend them?
Your advice would be appreciated. I don't want to go a-rootling just yet in case they're planning a surprise for me for later on, but I would like to know what's happening down there.
