Asparagus not alive?

Mt Gardenerlady
June 14, 2019

I planted one year old asparagus crowns three weeks ago. I dug the trenches, spread the roots out and covered with about 2 inches of good quality soil/compost mix. I watered every other day. It has yet to come up. I dug up a crown a few days ago and..... Nothing. It looks exactly like it did when I planted it. I thought maybe it's not getting enough water so I watered it a lot more and mulched the top with lawn clippings to keep in the moisture. I ordered these from Gurney's. I kept them in my fridge for about a week until I was able to plant. Any ideas or help or explaination? Thanks!
