Asparagus Plants


Shwallywally added on May 9, 2015 | Answered

I currently have 2 asparagus stems that are 4+ feet high. I was told I could cut them an inch to two inches off the ground. Push the cut piece into the ground. Then it would root and catch, starting another asparagus plant. I wanted to know if that is true. Also, since those 2 asparagus plants are so big, can I still harvest them?
