Drying Garlic

How do you dry your garlic out?

ANSWERS

First, do not wash off any freshly dug bulbs. Washing after harvesting encourages rot. To dry them, lay them out on a flat, newspaper-covered surface in a cool, dark, and dry area. You may even want to use a fan over them to circulate the air. They should be dry in about a week, at which time they can be stored until ready for use.

Garlic

I bought garlic to plant in the fall (instead of my using rather small heads that were grown) but, of course, I got busy and didn’t plant it. I live in the lower mainland of British Columbia, Canada. It is quite warm now (no snow, yesterday it was a record high 14% C. ) Can I still plant it now and get good results – I suppose there is no harm in trying it.

Yes, as long as the ground is not frozen yet, you can go ahead and plant it.

Use a phosphorus rich fertilizer (typically sold as "bloom booster" fertilizer) and fertilize them when you plant them.

Separating Garlic

I’ve neglected to harvest my garlic. Now there is quite a large bunch of garlic crowded together. Should I separate or just leave it alone until harvest time?

ANSWERS

I would recommend separating it.

Growing Garlic From Seed

I was given German red (or purple) garlic plants two years ago. They produced an abundance of seeds from their lovely flower tops. I planted them last year and they grew like onions. I am now separating them and replanting. I have a bushel of them, and I gave away many. So will they form cloves ever, or will they remain like an onion?

ANSWERS

They should produce a full bulb in their next year of growth.
