And we're off!

When I was up in the greenhouse yesterday I noticed that the garlic that I planted in a long tub is now shooting.


No sign of the elephant garlic yet and I bet the garlic planted on the plot is keeping its head down!

    1. Ours planted in tubs and on the plot did OK this year, Liz but it was a dry winter. This winter being the opposite I don't hold out much hope for the plot planted ones

  4. Oh now I look forward see how they grow in your garden cos I am not whether they will grow in the tropics or not. I brought back some a year old bulbils and they are sitting in the fridge.

    1. With our ground as wet as it is, Janet I think these have the best chance.
