Transplanting an asparagus bed

Asked October 20, 2017, 11:33 AM EDT

I am consolidating my garden plots. This requires moving a productive bed of asparagus. I planted the bed about 6 years ago. Harvests for the past 3 years have been very abundant. Can you provide tips on moving the bed this fall to another location? I have already prepped the destination bed.

Now is the perfect time to transplant asparagus. You can cut back the ferns before you move them. We're supposed to get at least another week of mild temperatures, too, which they should like.
