Asparagus – First Year Sprouts

Anonymous added on May 1, 2011 | Answered

Planted asparagus in the early spring. Plants have sprouted with very thin fingering branches that are growing good. Should I snap off the sprouts or let them grow all summer and winter? I have snipped off some of them, at the top to taste them. When do I start adding more soil to the crowns? When do I start fertilizing?
