Keeping this in view, will rabbits eat my asparagus?
Bunnies can eat asparagus. However, just like with everything, moderation is key. You don't want to ONLY feed your rabbit asparagus, because it might cause diarrhea due to the high water content. It is, though, very low in calcium.
Subsequently, question is, does asparagus need fertilizer? A. Asparagus can be fertilized in early spring before the spears emerge. An application of 1 to 1.5 pounds of an all-purpose garden fertilizer, such as 10-10-10, per 100 square feet should be adequate. Asparagus can also be fertilized after the last harvest in June.
