The Q&A Archives: asparagus

Question: My garden is full of weeds, including my asparagus patch. Instead of weeding all of it, could I burn it when it has all dried out?

Answer: You can flame the bed which will incinerate the weeds that have sprouted but it won't stop weed seeds already in the soil from sprouting in the spring. If you can at least cut the tops of the weeds down before they flower and set seeds this summer and fall, you'll eliminate some of the weeds next spring, as well.

Best wishes with your garden!
