I transplanted a few old and new crowns 27/6/17 in Gisborne Vic into a different bed wondering how long before they settle there and was it the wrong time to replant them and will they produce any asparagus this year .Thanks for any comments anyone can post .Tony

Tony - a friend of mine has had asparagus in for 4-5 years. He moved them last year and they are doing fine. Asparagus is dormant during the winter months and this is the time to do it. You probably could have waited another month or so but I don't think it will do any harm. Hope you dug the soil up good and put some manure in the garden bed. During July and August put some more manure / compost on top of the garden -- 4-6".
