Does anyone grow asparagus for the foliage?
There are two volunteer clumps of asparagus in my yard, both along the fence line in really inconvenient places, and I noticed the other day that they are both still alive! That's with no water at all this summer. I'm thinking of harvesting the seeds and planting them against the wall in my flower bed. I can cut the shoots until the plants in the foreground get big and then let them go to be backdrop. Would that work or would letting them go ruin them as a food crop the next year?
