    Mines similar but prehaps with less yellow leaves, the ground looks very dry could be lack of water. I was going to water mine then put a mulch of compost down.

    Did you plant last year? I did two lots one in October, one in February, the latter started in modules and these have all green leaves.

    Sorry doesn't really answer your Q...someone else may have a better answer though.

    As long as it's only the tips and/or the oldest leaves it should be fine.

    I ought to add that this is the first time we've grown garlic (strictly speaking this is the Under Gardener's garlic), but a friend is a garlic farmer, and  his garlic fields  look like this image

    Both my onions and garlic have these too - not much but a bit, and yet all the signs are they are bulbing up nicely at the base, so I am not too worried, but think it is interesting that on these threads people are often having the same experiences - must be something to do with the weather conditions.

    The recent rain has perked my garlic up significantly. It was starting to look distinctly droopy with the yellowing you describe. Ok, my fault for not watering more but hopefully no harm done. I also put some onion fertilser around each plant and that, combined with the rain, has made a massive difference. Leaves look much greener, plants are more upright etc.
