Q.How Can I Transplant Asparagus?

Zone Georgia | Trishbc added on September 23, 2021 | Answered

I had a raised bed of 5yo asparagus. We were hit by an EF4 tornado in late March that destroyed our backyard and gardens. Our asparagus was in good shape until we had to have major dozer work and for some reason the asparagus bed got dozed to the side of our yard along with a pile of tree trunks. The asparagus has popped up again, but this pile of trees has to be removed next. I need to know what to do with my plants/roots. Can I remove the whole asparagus plant to a new bed or dig up roots after trimming back soon? This was probably 4-5 dozen plants, just starting to really produce. Thank you for an answer.

Yes, transplanting them will be a good option. This is best done once they go dormant, though.

Here is an article that will help you to do so:
