Likewise, people ask, how deep should a raised bed for raspberries be?

Raspberries spread through an extensive underground root system, and need a planter at least 18 to 20 inches deep to accommodate their growth. Additionally, raspberries spread above ground by as much as 1 to 2 feet per season. Make the planter at least 3 feet wide so they have plenty of room to grow.

How deep does an asparagus bed need to be?

Spread 2 to 3 inches of compost over the planting area and mix it into the soil. Dig a trench 12 inches wide by 12 inches deep where the crowns are to be planted. Rows of asparagus should be at least 2 feet apart, allowing two rows to fit in a 4-foot wide bed.

Can you grow asparagus from a cutting?

Propagation from cuttings is a relatively simple process for plants that have the capability to grow roots from stems, leaves or buds. However, asparagus fern develops from tuberous roots that grow just below the surface of the soil, so cuttings taken from the plant will not root.
