- How long does it take for asparagus to establish?
I have been trying to get an asparagus patch started. Planted approximately 5 years or so ago and each year the plants grow but I do not get harvestable asparagus. I have consulted the elder gardners in my family for zone 5 and have done all that they suggested to no avail. I mix in a salt mix into the soil in March and have even worked in chicken coop manure in the past as suggested. Nothing seems to be working. Any other helpful suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
