Canyone tell me why the garlic I planted last March had a humongous root system but no bulbs?


  • The soil is clay and we watered regularly. Too much watering?

  • was it supermarket garlic or seeds

  • hello Barbro, garlic is normally planted in autumn as it needs a period of cold weather to trigger bulb formation and needs up to 9 months in the ground. I'm in NZ and plant my garlic in April/May and harvest end Dec through to beginning of February depending on the variety. The undivided bulbs are called rounds and can be eaten or kept for replanting.
