Picked about 4 lbs this weekend
I picked four nice spears this morning also. .will go good with dinner tomorrow
Tilling mainly keeps the weeds down. Want a bigger patch? Plant more plants. Take care of them. Mulch and preen in spring. Little bit of lime. Fertilize 2 to 3 times a year. Keep it watered even after you are finished picking for season. I would save the seeds from the berries and plant them then add them to my patch after 3 years. Also check around base of existing plants for seedlings. Replant in a row and baby them, them add to patch in 2 to 3 years.
Any thoughts on how to get a patch to expand? I heard you could till it, and this would help spread the roots????
I'm finally seeing a lot of shoots coming up but most are poor quality. Buggy and just bad looking. The recent heat got it all going but without any rain it all seems to be suffering. Worst year I've seen anyway.
