Q.Preparing Bed For Planting A Vegetable Garden

Zone 28791 | Anonymous added on May 15, 2021 | Answered

I have a 8’x4′ box used some time ago for asparagus. I would like to add more soil but don’t want to lose the asparagus. Can I add ~3″ of soil over the asparagus or should I move it and replant after adding the additional soil? I already get your newsletter and find it most enjoyable and very helpful.

Research indicates that it's okay to put this much soil over existing asparagus crowns. I don't know if it will affect its rate of growth, but it probably won't have a negative effect on the plants themselves, as long as the proper growing conditions are maintained.
