    They came up in our lawn in Wellington from birdseed. They got very large and I was very surprised to see them when the lawn was mown after a long unmown time.

    Go to New Zealand subtropical asparagus and the info is there when to plant. Bunnings generally have them in August to plant. Or internet seed selling website.

    Yes, second season is always best crop, third season is ok. Replace with runners and plantlets from your current bed as they are tuned to your area. Past three years plants don’t produce as well.
