My Garlic Is in Bloom – What Do I Do?

I have the large garlic in my garden. It now has blossoms on it. Do I need to do anything to it? Do I pick the blossoms off? Or just ignore them?

Once they are at least 12" tall, cut them off. They are called scapes and can be harvested and eaten as a vegetable. If you leave them on, they will sap away energy from the bulb production.
