Asparagus growing early

i planted asparagus last spring. I cut down and mulched in the autumn. It is now growing again in January. Is this because the weather is mild and I live in Cornwall.?The spears are spindly, should I cut them down or leave them. Will more arrive in April when I believe they should grow?

    I'd leave them. You aren't meant to harvest them in the first year anyway. More will grow later. Leave them too.

    Yep I heard that you do not harvest any spears until the second year.. My friend grew some and she found the same thing...  

  • Thank you I will do that
