You can transplant asparagus at any time provided the soil conditions are right. But we find early spring to be the best time of the year to carry out your transplanting. This is because the soil conditions and weather are favorable to support healthy growth and development.
Before you commence transplanting your asparagus, you want to ensure that you do all the necessary preparatory work. This includes choosing the right site and getting the ground ready to receive the asparagus.
You need to be aware that transplanting asparagus requires patience. So if you are in a hurry, you might want to postpone the process till when you have enough time to spare. Lifting and transplanting the asparagus crown should be easy if you take proper care and caution.
You can include compost to the soil to condition the soil. But we recommend that you leave this for once you start to notice new spears on the plant. This means that the transplant was successful and can now continue with the normal garden maintenance practice to improve your soil and plant yield.
The roots of your asparagus should grow stronger with each passing year. We recommend that you save some few spears after each harvest to allow room for more foliage.
