I've followed all the first season growing instructions, planted 40 crowns in trenches, added dirt as they grew,watched them grow, was tempted to eat, ok tried one or 2 spears, the season has changed to fall the plants all grew quite large i must say.
Now the question, I need to cut them back, just how close to the ground do you go, to the dirt? about 2 to 3" above the dirt??
I know I mulch them after cutting. Do I go as deep a layer as I do my garlic?? Presently garlic has a 6" to 8" cover I will be adding more to it as I mow up my leaves..
Thanks in advance as always, Played this to the beginning of the first real sustained cold snap that will probably last the rest of the season..
