: HI , I live in West Virginia, just planted some aspagagus plant this spring. Of couse i know that , it will be a few years before i can have any to eat. I just need to know what to do to them to winter them . I wouldnt want them to freeze out. Thanks Linda Lou
Salt hay is the best. a little expensive but it'll last for several seasons. mulch your beds/rows with a 6-8" deep layer of salt hay once the ground is frozen. the idea is to stop the alternate freezing and thawing that occurs during the winter. plants can heave out of the soil if this happens several times. good luck
