I did not plant asparagus in a bed, but the old fashioned way in a trench. Asparagus roots grow upward so unless the roots are showing I would not fill in the bed until the crown has grown. The crown should not be buried. After the fronds come up you can add more compost around them. In the third year you should be able to get a small harvest.
you say the asparagus hasnt come up yet ;estorms wrote:This will be the third year coming up for my raised asparagus bed. The soil has sunk 6-8 inches. None of the asparagus has come up yet. Can I just shovel on more compost?
is that this season or the last 3 years?
If its a no show this year a couple of inches more good compost should be fine !
