Lots of planting instructions say ‘full sun’ but how many hours is that? Especially for asparagus.
Thank you,

Ellie, if your asparagus gets between 6-8 hours of full sun, that should be sufficient for good growth.

When the production for asparagus has ended for this year and my asparagus plants have started going to seed, should I cut them back? If so at what point and how short?

Angie, you don’t need to cut back until the late fall, when the plants are going into dormancy. You just need to cut them back to leave a few inches above the ground (good so you know that it is there).

I’ve watched several of your videos. Really like the format! You’ve also encouraged me to try growing currants!
