Taking care of asparagus
Should asparagus be cut down after going to seed?
Wright County Minnesota
Thank you for your question.
I checked with a Master Gardener who teaches classes about asparagus and here is her answer.....
"Better late than never!! The U of M website says leave "the ferns" until spring, didn't say anything about the seeds. However, when I put the presentation together, I think I recall reading that the asparagus sprouts that come from those red seeds are somewhat inferior."
Hope this helps.
