    i had a boat load of asparagus seeds from some over grown plants that i let go to seed for that purpose. i scattered them liberally in an area that also has my rhubarb. now i have a mix. the baby asparagus plants are very thick...like every seed sprouted. what would be a good time to move them and how well will they respond to transplanting?

    MELOC, I have a similar situation, only my asparagus seeds migrated into the neighboring rhubarb on their own. I am surprised no one answered your question. Maybe my reply will move it to the top again and help us both.

    I would love to know about the transplants, I am looking forward to getting small plants in the spring.

    I asked a similar question a while back and the general response was to wait until fall when the plants have bushed out and gotten brown. You'll need to let them continue to grow all summer where they are.
