I have recently purchased my own home & my boyfriend & I are preparing our backyard for our garden. We have several raised beds for lettuces, broccolis and such, but we plan on planting an asparagus patch in ground.
Before we moved we had been living with my parents & had transformed their backyard into a vegetable garden. They like it, but they are older & can't keep up with the watering, weeding, etc. They prefer flowers. Earlier this year I had ordered & planted several asparagus crowns & only five took. So now my parents have five asparagus ferns in their backyard that I would be interested in transplanting to my yard. Is this possible?
Since the plants themselves are so new (planted in April) I wasn't sure if disrupting the roots would kill the plant off entirely. Any tips on how to properly transplant asparagus? I should say I am in Southern California & temperature today has hit 107 degrees. It looks like for the next two weeks we are looking at 90+ degree temps, so if I could wait on the transplant until winter/spring, I'd prefer it. Thanks for all your help, guys!
