Asparagus should be fertilized with a granular fertilizer in the spring before the spears start popping out. You can use a balanced fertilizer like a 10-10-10. If you can find one, close to that, with a higher P+K that would be optimal. Most fertilizers give you the amount per square foot. Once you visually see how it looks in a square foot, you can replicate it across your bed.
