I have two year old asparagus that i have let grow up and blossom out. I haven't harvested any and have lots of plant. My question is, should it be cut back or left to die on it's own.

Thank you for your question. The ferns will die back on their own, so you can ignore them as they are still photosynthesizing. Here is an OSU Extension article on their care: https://extension.oregonstate.edu/news/asparagus-rewards-patience Good luck!
