My friend planted some asparagus last year in 3 bunches. She didn't know the they should be in rows.
This year they came out with the tall fronds.
Can we dig these up & separate the individual plants so we can replant them in rows ?
Will they produce OK in clusters ?
Should we just start again ?

|My understanding is they are planted in rows to help you with harvest. I don't see any reason why you can't dig and replant them. Let us know what you do.|

|I would wait until the ferns start dying back in the fall to dig them up, though. Right now they are making new roots for next year's spears.
Much better to move them when they are about to go dormant, after the first cold weather browns the leaves.
