Answer: Newly planted asparagus can be very late to emerge depending on weather, planting depth and soil conditions. If you are too curious to simply wait patiently, you could gently dig down to a sample crown and see if there is any activity, but it does take a while for the crowns to settle in and begin to grow. Once the spears emerge they do shoot up amazingly quickly. Do make sure that they receive adequate water for at least this first year while they are becoming established since asparagus appreciate a rich and moist yet well drained soil (meaning not soggy).
