Starting an asparagus patch

Asparagus    Greenwood, MO

I purchased "4yr. old" asparagus roots, planted 15 of them this spring and only 4 have produced the fern like growth. Does this mean that the others are done? Dead? Is it possible to move the living ones, since the others are not producing, if so when can I transplant them?

Hi. I’m growing asparagus for the first time this year. I planted my seeds about 8 days and so far they haven’t sprouted, I’m starting to get worried. What could I be doing wrong?
