Cutting Back Asparagus

Asked October 2, 2017, 3:22 PM EDT

When can I safely cut back my asparagus? I am still getting an occasional stalk from the small patch. Is that normal? Any other tips to keep it growing & productive will be appreciated.

Cut asparagus down to 2" above the ground when it has died back due to frost. Doesn't hurt to mulch or put down some compost to help it overwinter.
