Q.

my asparagus hasn’t grown

Zone sandy soil | suemalc added on June 21, 2012 | Answered

I bought some plants from a grower three years ago and I let them grow on for three years. This year over half the plants haven't grown there has been no sign of life. Does this mean my plants are dead or do you think they might do something next year.
