Q.Is It Ok To Plant Asparagus In A Raised Bed?

Zone Merrill WI, 54452 | Anonymous added on May 17, 2021 | Answered

I live north of the 45th parallel and had an established bed of Asparagus but not doing very well, over grown with lots of grass. Transplanted it to a raised bed last year and it seemed to improve. However i have not seen any sprouts yet this spring. Did it freeze out because of it being in a raised bed?

It's hard to speculate about this. I don't know how deep your beds are or how deeply you planted your asparagus. It may simply be adjusting to a new environment. Asparagus can tolerate some pretty cold climates.
