Having only 1 year of experience with asparagus - planted one last spring - mine is not coming up. Is this normal for our zone? If not, bummer if I have to replace it.

I'll guess given the weather this year, yes. I'm in southern Wisconsin and mine has just been really coming up for a week or so now. I know you guys have had much more cold and snow than we have. Soil temperatures are the key driver for asparagus emergence--soil temps at or above 50F will get them going. I use a digital kitchen thermometer to take occasional soil temperature readings at a few inches depth.

Think I'll give it another bit of time. Yes, you are quite a bit south compared to me. Thanks.

I am in SD zone 4, and my asparagus has not made a showing yet either. Asparagus in Minnesota 950477 This is the 3rd year for my bed, so I should be able to get a good harvest this year, but so far not a sighting!

rofl I just pulled aside the 4" of leaves that blew into my asparagus bed before snowfall this winter. In just one spot I found 3 little stems. There is hope!

Having never planted it and reading other comments in other threads, I think I may have to move this. I had no idea that it needed way more depth. Wonder if I were to remove the weed cloth that it would maybe find its way deeper without me having to move it. What do you think?

Asparagus in Minnesota Empty Asparagus tips

Post  Suzy on 5/13/2013, 5:32 pm

Hi, Greatgranny - I don't know about asparagus "finding its way deeper" - the roots tend to climb to the surface over time. Watch what happens after you have a good rain, followed by 70+ degree days... your asparagus should shoot up like crazy. That's the magic combination, until then you'll have sporadic sprouting. Good luck!
