How to: Garlic

Two varieties of garlic did not make it into the ground in the fall, Broadleaf Czech and Inchelium Red. The softneck varietals, which do not form a scape, or flower stalk, store longer than hardneck varietals and can be braided. Last year I had success with spring-planted garlic and here we are again.

I also had some 40 hardneck bulbs that did not get planted, which when opened, exposed beautiful large cloves, sprouting happily.  Though these were a mix and I can’t tell which is which, my bet would be that several are the German Extra Hardy, with 3 to 4 very large cloves surrounding the stem.
