Q.About The Fertilizer For Our Garlic

Zone WALDEN, NY | Anonymous added on May 31, 2022 | Answered

We have grown the garlic in November in last year. I see an article in your website which suggest not to apply high nitrogen fertilizer after May. I am in Orange county in New York. I am not sure whether the climate here is similar with yours. Is this guidance suitable for our place and climate? By the way, do you know why the tips of the leaves are somewhat yellow? From the beginning of May, the tips of the leaves start to be yellow. We guess maybe it is because the temperature is low at that time and the garlic is frozen. What do you think about this? Is it because some nutrients are defenciency? There are some picture of our garlic in the below link for your reference. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1s4DEnBQBnauHxFUZuzyX6ddQsOWMK5bF Blessings Lily

Our articles give general information that should be appropriate almost anywhere. Are you fertilizing regularly? Your garlic may need a side dressing of nitrogen. Here is information for New York from Rutgers University that may help, plus nearby states.
