I have a question. What is the best way to store the cloves you plan to replant next year? I live in the central valley of Ca and summers here get over 100 degrees. Should I keep them in the refrigerator? This is my first year growing (I hope) garlic so any advice appreciated. Wink

We usually keep them in a metal mesh basket hanging from a support in the basement. I have a 3-tier basket for home-grown potatoes, and a single one for garlic, both in the darkest, coolest part of the basement. Don't have to deal with much real hot weather in Western Oregon, so I hope some others can give you better advice. Nonna

Here in Central NJ I planted for the first time garlic cloves in the fall 2011.

Two weeks ago I harvested most of my garlic and then the rest this week. They are currently curing and I plan on cleaning off the dirt tom or Sat. I will then cure them another week or two depending how they look. Then I will try braiding them (softnecks). I currently have them stored in a brown low box in the kitchen (hubby says in smells of garlic - really you think!? lol...

I have a quick question - Should I replant the garlic in the same location and box or can I plant them in a different box since I like to rotate all my boxes of veg's each year?

Happy garlic planting and harvesting.....Friday Rookie Topic - Garlic - Page 2 410210

I got 18 heads (some are quite small) and made my first garlic braid Laughing , but considering how many things I did wrong i'm pleased. Gonna replant much more this fall and should be in great shape next year.

As soon as you can work the ground. Now if you can, but typically in the autumn, just before thanksgiving I would think.

Post  southern gardener 5/31/2013, 2:00 pm

I planted garlic last fall. I don't know what kind it is...just from the local garden place. They seem to have hard necks?? But they're not producing "scapes", so does that mean they're soft necks?? I've searched all over and can't seem to figure it out. I want to harvest if it's time, but soft necks are supposed to "fall over" and these are not. hard necks are supposed to be harvested when the bottom 1/3 to half of the leaves are brown..which these are; but as I said no scapes.....help!!

hi

I read thru the thread and didn't see anything about letting garlic go to flower.....

we left some scapes grow on some of our garlic and it now has what looks like a purple type flower on it......

Friday Rookie Topic - Garlic - Page 2 Dscf0339

Thought I read some where that you can plant these....has anyone tried it? or know anything about using the flower part to start garlic seed with?.....I though I read that it takes two years to grow them....but Im not sure how to go about it....

thanks

Post  johnp 4/13/2014, 3:48 pm

I noticed over the past week the tips of my garlic are turning brown. This has me concerned. One of two reasons that I can think of are cold weather about a week ago (21F) and weed killer over spray (round up). They were very careful with the weed killer and the cilantro in the same bed is fine. Would it hurt to clip the tips off or would that hurt the plants even more?

John, mine get to looking like that too. Were the garlic sprouted before you went into winter? The could could have something to do with it. The tips of a few leaves look to be the only thing showing yellow so I wouldn't worry about it.

some times I just trim off the unsightly leave parts to make myself feel better.  Wink

In Kansas, I planted garlic last fall...first timer so I read that it should be ready for harvest in June.  I like the thought that garlic can grow all winter when nothing else is going on...maybe making room for more veggies in the fall garden.

Bump 

 Fall and garlic planting is something to start thinking about.  A lot of places are already sold out of certain varieties.

Post  brainchasm 10/27/2014, 10:32 pm

I have my six biggest heads from my 6/21/14 harvest currently cooling their heels in my wine cellar at 55degF.  That harvest was originally planted 1/1/14 (I was shooting for the winter solstice, 12/21/13 or thereabouts, but I missed).  I planted 36 cloves, and got 36 heads, but most were small because I forgot to amend the beds before planting.

This year I won't make that mistake.

So, again shooting for the solstice (old saying goes plant garlic on the shortest day of the year, and harvest on the longest day of the year), this time with healthy amended beds!

I hope I have 36 cloves in those six heads!  If I have extra, I will plant those as well and see about letting them just stay in the ground...maybe they'll flower or something?  Oh, they are heirloom Red Incheliums (softneck), and here's the pics:

Friday Rookie Topic - Garlic - Page 2 14472936664_3e1e8c1081_b
This was at harvest, or thereabouts.


Friday Rookie Topic - Garlic - Page 2 15016117295_70002a1696_b
This was after a couple months of curing, and then trim and cleanup. Smile
