What can I do about my bitter ASPARAGUS?
Bucks, United Kingdom
I planted an asparagus bed 5 years ago - I don't remember the type - but did it all properly - left it for 2 years before harvesting any. It's very productive, but unfortunately it's horribly bitter tasting. I've tried cutting it earlier, smaller, cutting below the soil, breaking the stem above the soil, fertilizing...Any suggestions? Or shall I just give up and pull it out and plant something else?
I live in Bucks, have a clay soil but it's been well prepared and is a sunny site.
