I planted an asparagus bed form seed in 1970 and it served me well for 32 years until I built a new garage and had to destroy the bed. I started a new bed from 24 one year old root in 2003. Both were the Mary Washington variety. I hoe around the edge to keep the grass out and pull any weeds I see when I pick the spears every day. I quit picking the last week of June and shortly there is too much shade for weeds to grow.
