So, my youngest took a dislike to one of my garlic plants today... since he pretty much broke the stem off (and I've got plenty) I thought I might just dig it up and see what's doing.
It basically looks just like a spring onion, with a purplish end but nothing really ressembling a bulb... I realise that's basically green garlic (smells nice and probably quite tasty!) but I'm now worried. Shouldn't my garlic (planted in November) be a bit further along by now? Or is it only in the last month or so that the bulbs form?
