  1. Were these autumn planted and if so, when do you usually harvest garlic? I’m currently working to ‘plant shortest day, harvest longest’…. Though I planted mine in November!

  2. They were, yes. These I think are elephant garlic though, rather then the conventional ones. I harvested these as they had bolted and were sending up buds. I usually harvest when the foliage has gone all raffia like, and the stem have keeled over. I expect the rest to to be harvested in about 6-8 weeks.

  3. Was one bulb. Think it was the elephant garlic; its related to the leek. Finely chopped and stashed into the fridge for ma to use. Going into Bollywood baked beans now though for my breakfast
