I've got my eye on a raised cinderblock bed, probably about 2 feet deep. There is dirt in there already, and I know I'll need to amend it to build some soil more specific to asparagus' needs. The bed has a cover of low-lying weeds (no grasses). If I pull the weeds now and cover with cardboard/mulch over the winter, will this be enough to have a sufficiently weed-free bed? Or will any remaining seeds just grow in the Spring?
What have been your experiences in growing asparagus (right soil conditions and keeping weeds down)? Thanks for your help in creating my plan of attack
