Should I plant white Dutch clover on my new asparagus bed? I don’t think it would compete much? The asparagus is up good, two year old crowns.

By the way this company was cheaper and had a better selection than the others I looked at:

Thanks Joseph!

Do you make any effort to keep the clover back a little or just let it grow?
