You can also harvest garlic before it reaches its full maturity, if you can see the bulbs and they look big enough to use then use them fresh as 'wet' garlic, delicious

does anyone know what it means when it flowers? is it ready or have I left it too late?  the shoots havn't yellowed so I've left it in (overwintered)

i don't let my garlic flower, i cut the stem before it has chance to flower, so it puts its energy into swelling the bulb rather than growing a flower.  Read it somewhere a few years ago when i first grew it.

I was thinking that just this morning as I looked at my yellowing garlic.  Thanks for the link.

Hello,

Deciding when to harvest your garlic crop is not an exact science. In the USA and much of Northern Europe garlic is usually harvested in the summer months. The harvesting begins in July and picking can continue all the way through August.
