Love the idea of no dig gardening, yet to start but planning on doing so very soon. Been wondering how you plant asparagus roots in a no dig garden? The usual way of planting in soil is to dig down very deep at least a foot and place the roots and fill in hole gradually as the plant grows.
Charles, when I mentioned digging down a foot to plant the asparagus roots, I should have mentioned that I live in Nova Scotia, Canada and wonder if the method that you mention for planting asparagus would still apply?
Maybe then the winter cold is not a problem, I was guessing from what you said about a foot deep, and wonder if it’s another myth.
One foot down there is much less life and activity in soil than say 3-6in.
