Slowly it dawns !


Think I have now got the knack of Elephant Garlic. Am digging over the area I where I planted the cloves last September. Impossible to leave it because of Monsoon rain weed roots. My cloves are individual, about the size of large marbles, not big roots like the 2 expensive ones I bought, which must have been left 2 years in a dry foreign country somewhere.
Will plant some of these marble sized cloves in trays of compost to let them make roots, then plant out on my plot later on. Will see what happens next, as all plants renew themselves. Elephant Garlic has its own Agenda !

I hope your garlic will do well Diane. I's a good idea to try new methods.

Thanks Hywel. I still dont understand how the original planted Elephant Garlic Cloves would remain growing for 2 years.
