Asparagus Plants


Zone 7 | mikeh added on December 11, 2011 | Answered

I received my asparagus crowns in early Nov. and planted them a week before Thanksgiving. I just noticed sprouts coming up and we are having frost every morning. Should I be covering these sprouts? I live in NC, so weather can still get warm during the day, but frost by morning.

    We would recommend adding a layer of leaves or mulch over them for winter.
