This is my asparagus bed and a month or so ago I noticed some sprouts dying but not all. Is the rust and will it kill the roots for next year? I have had to put a #9 wire with steel posts around the bed to keep the ferns from falling over and ending up on the ground, some are over 7 ft tall. I included pictures that were taken today 10/27/19
I have read about asparagus rust and if it is rust I should be able to control it next year. I got the asparagus roots (asparabest) from online Gurney's Seed and Nursery.
