Growing Garlic

This year I planted Fall garlic because all of the Spring planted garlic I have tried has had poor results.  I planted the garlic last month after our first real frost.  Just recently I noticed the garlic has been growing and has started to come up.  We have had some milder weather than usual.  I am not sure if this is what should happen yet.  I was under the impression the garlic would get roots established but the green leaves would not grow yet.  I am going to cover them with a blanket of leaves and hope that it is enough protection to keep them safe until Spring.

  1. We planted garlic for the first time this fall, so I'm not sure what will happen. I do think you did the right thing by covering them up. We covered ours too. Hopefully we'll both have lots of garlic next spring!
