Default Asparagus

Have an Asparagus bed .. and not sure waht to cut & when.

Sometimes i get multiple shoots form one plants so I have bee cutting all bar one - read that you had to leave leaf growth to ensure plants the next year.

This year though several of the plants only producing a single shoot - which quickly grows into a tall fern .... do I still cut if only a single shoot, will that encourage more to grow or will that risk killing plant ?

Do I still need to allow some green full height growth per plant each year ?
