I am hoping this is the correct place for this question.

We will be planting our second peach tree (our first was planted a few weeks ago) and we were looking into options for things to plant under them. Will asparagus work well (or even ok) for this? I had googled "peach tree guilds" and plants similar to asparagus were mentioned and we needed to figure out a place to plant the asparagus anyway. From what I have read the asparagus doesn't like competition but once it gets going it is pretty vigorous. If the two by themselves wouldn't work is there a third plant that will help bring the whole system together?

plant your asparagus at least a foot and a half away from the trees
