Asparagus – no dig, planted in mulch over weeds, how to grow and harvest

Filmed in summer of asparagus year 6 after a third season of harvests, this year 2018 we picked 15.5kg/34lb of spears. The asparagus plants are growing on level ground with no ridges, easier for weeding because very few grow. We are a zone 8, temperate climate with around 800mm/32in rain per annum. My garden includes 1000sqm of no dig beds (a quarter acre), growing salad leaves and some vegetables for sale.

  1. Thanks again Charles, though this is a first thank you. I have been following your site and advice for a couple of years. After organic gardening for 40 years your short piece on BBC excited me to try 2 small beds on our lawn. Ureka! It worked and I now also have 2 allotments and a walled garden under no dig cultivation. Looking forward to an extended gardening life. Thanks again. Chas
