Hello folks, have pulled up all my garlic as it had rust spots and was getting worse. Now I've got an abundance of it!  Do you hang up garlic to dry, a bit like onions? How do you store it and how long will it last?  Thanks muchly.

I'm still using garlic from last year; I tie it with string (you can plait the soft neck varieties) and hang it up in the kitchen

Thanks Artjak. Do I need to cut off the rusty leaves?

Depends which garlic you have grown.....soft or hard necked...........one keeps better than the other..........hang up in a cool airy place and use as you need

The leaves won.t do anything for the bulbs now you have harvested so take them off.
