As soon as it is not going to freeze any more. The tips can be frozen if it freezes once they start to grow. By leaving the material until it isn't likely to freeze, the ground doesn't warm up as fast either. Here is a link to info about growing asparagus.http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/vegetables/growing-asparagus-in-minnesota-home-garde...

Thank you.
