Q.Garlic Grown Over Winter Months

Zone Floral Park, NY 11001-Long Island | Anonymous added on January 19, 2021 | Answered

Planted garlic bulbs in the fall. Covered them with straw. Because of the
warming and cooling of the temperature, getting green tops thru the straw. My question is- should I cut back the green tops before winter sets in and freezes everything? Please advise.
Thank You

I would add more mulch, they should be dormant through winter.
