Answer: Unfortunately, weeding is a chore in asparagus and the only way to stay ahead is hand hoeing and mulching. Clean out as many weeds as possible in spring and mulch the bed after cutting asparagus is finished with a 4-6" layer of compost. This will bury annual weed seeds and make it hard for perennials to grow. You'll still have to weed, but hopefully it'll be less of a chore. No sprays, salt or any other products are safe for the asparagus to use.
