When does one stop cutting the asparagus, so not to harm the plants and how about adding a fertilizer for the crop--
when and what type?

I find that asparagus does well with several inches of rich compost layered on the bed and worked in a bit each spring. You can also use 5-10-10. Start harvesting in spring as spears emerge and stop 6-8 weeks later.
