Garlic Crop

My Garlic crop was a disaster last year, not one come up.  All other veg in my veg patch was brilliant (potatoes, shallots, onions, leeks, peas, etc)  Is there anything I need to do when planting this year?

    I have had some rot off this year, but I put in another lot last week and some are showing now. Maybe mice had them, I know two of my early ones moved 30ft, so mice could be the culprits.


  • Thanks, will put some in and hope for the best.  

  • Try starting them off in modules first and then transplanting to the plot once they have established roots.  I did this and it worked really well.

  • Will do, i do this with peas as the birds and mice like them too
