should I cut back my asparagus
My asparagus plants were planted in 2008. I planted both roots and seeds. Both root and seed plants are now big and bushy. I did not cut any asparagus in 2008, 2009 or in 2010, as I understood there should be no cuttings the first three years. What should I do now? I live in Pennsylvania. I have never cut the plants back and simply left them to grow. Should I just let them go? Should I cut them down? Next year will be the 4th year for these plants and I have never done anything to them. I'm anxious to harvest them next year! Thanks for any help.
