hi i'm new to this site. but i've been growing for many years now. i just wondered if anyone could help me. this year is the first tims i've tried to grow elephant garlic, at the moment i have them in a heated green house. i just wondered if anyone could tll me the lowest temp they will survive at. my greenhouse is heated at about 20'c at the moment but i would like to harden them off so they can go outside.

They are completely hardy and should go outside as soon as possible because it needs a month of under 10 degrees c to divide otherwise it'll be one big bulb.

20 degrees, that's warmer than we keep our house!

Garlic needs a period of cold to help it split into cloves, they really do not need heat. They need about 30 days with temps below 10c. I would say plant out now BUT as yourr garlic will have very soft growth if you can put it in a cold frame to accustom it to outside that would help. You may find that you only have a couple of cloves aplant, hopefully more. Start to harden off now.

Garlic is a tough plant.
