Q.Garlic planting

Zone 19702 | Ktribb87 added on October 5, 2017 | Answered

I ordered bulbs online to plant and I have read several places to plant within 48 hours of deprecating the cloves from the bulbs, the putter paper on most of my bulbs is broken and separated, is it still okay for me to plant? I haven’t gotten my beds ready for garlic yet, and was aiming for a week or two from now.

Removing the husk and separating can definitely reduce the viability of the bulblets. I would plant them as soon as possible. I'm sure some of them will survive, but prepare to possibly lose some.
