-Farming- Growing garlic...

Recommended Posts


Garlic is supposed to be harvested by mid summer, when plant shows certain signs and bulb has developed to a 'normal' size.


The question is; not harvesting the garlic for another year until next summer, will the plant produce more bulbs, bigger bulb, plant dies, existing cloves germinate or stays the same ?

Were planted October 2012; already wintered; supposed to harvest July 2013 and that link is only for one of the two preferred planting times (early spring or late fall)

Allowing the flowers to produce bulbils for use as seedlings takes 2 to 3 years growth to maturity at only ~15% success compared to sowing cloves for ~150 days to maturity.

Not much "fun"

So, question remains...frown.gif
