Early Italian garlic cloves

Zone Zone 5 Wisconsin | lbdgrasso added on May 25, 2015 | Answered

Will the Early Italian garlic cloves I planted in April in Wisconsin be able to form decent sized bulbs? Most articles say to plant garlic in fall but I forgot, so I ordered Early Italian softnecks for braiding this spring. Do you have any advice on how I can grow them to a decent size by end of summer or fall here in SE Wisconsin? I planted them with our garden compost mixed into the soil, side-dressed with the same and watered with a high nitrogen fertilizer (one time). What else should I do? Thanks in advance. Linda

Well, I have my fingers crossed for you! Read through the fertilizing requirements in the University Of Minnesota link I am listing along with a few articles from Gardening Know How.
