Asparagus did not come up this year

ragarmJuly 9, 2012

I have 7 asparagus plants I put in 4 years ago. They produced ok, but this spring nothing came up. One has a fern growing, which I left alone.

This past fall is the first time I did not cut down the ferns. I cut them down in the spring. Was that my problem?

Will they come back next year, or should I consider replacing these plants? I'm still watering the area.

Any special treatment???

Thanks

If they didn't come up this year, it's doubtful that they'll come up the next. I'd plant new ones. If you decide to plant new ones, you might as well dig up the old ones to see if you can see an obvious problem.
