The Q&A Archives: Flat Asparagus

Question: hi,this morning i noticed that my asparagus was flat and falling over. it is still green but also has some white dots near the top. this a disease? can i treat it or does it have anything to do with the frost we had two nights ago? thanks

Answer: This could be freeze damage if the temperatures were very cold. Remove the stalks and keep an eye on subsequent growth. If the new growth shows the same symptoms, it could be a disease problem and you might want to consult with your county extension for a specific identification of what the problem is and how to treat it.
