can i dig up my asparagus crowns and divide them and put them back in the bed in bare spots?? the bed is about 10 years old and i have some plants that are all gnarled, and wonky so i think i'll just pull those and replace them with others in the bed

Only time I ever did it was fall. Never tried it this time of year, so I don't know if it would work or not.
