We have been working on our asparagus patch for the last six+ years. It was in the upper garden for the first 4-5 years. They were barely even producing enough to snack on…they were also planted right in the middle of the upper garden. So, we dug them up and transplanted them to the raised bed garden along the wall of the upper garden. (With the exception of one plant that got left behind…and it grows just fine).
It took two years for the transplants to settle in but they are now doing great and we are finally able to harvest enough to snack off, and have with dinner … Yay!
Earlier this year I cleared out the the other side of the bed and planted 20 new plants.
