over wintering garlic - what should it be doing?
I'm relatively new to gardening and have only ever grown garlic unintentionally in a kitchen cupboard. But I'm upon wanting to expand my homegrown produce to more than tomatos and herbs and upon hearing you could over winter garlic decided to give it a go with instructions pulled off the internet.Now these instructions said to plant in October so I did (2 weeks ago thinking that the weather was turning for the proper autumn chill in Yorkshire and wanting to ensure they had chance to grow roots before the frosts hit hard).
They now have green shoots of approximately an inch in height. Should I be covering these in more soil to protect them from frosts? I wasnt expecting to see growth so soon and can't find anywhere that tells me how to care for the garlic now its in the soil.
Basically the internet will tell you how to plant them just fine -but I need real people what I'm meant to do from now on!
All advice gratefully received!
