I have a love hate relationship with garlic. I have hardly ever grown a good crop despite using every tip others have given me.
Almost every year I say I won't grow it anymore after a disappointing harvest. Especially as it takes up room and is in the garden so long before it's ready.
This year I have planted elephant garlic which is milder and larger and not really true garlic but fingers crossed it grows better for me than proper garlic. I have also planted a few regular garlic too because this just might be my year.
Any garlic tips are always welcome because maybe one day I will be able to say I grew awesome garlic.
