Talkback: How to grow garlic

Posted: 21/04/2012 at 18:03

I planted a single row of garlic in a raised bed 3 or 4 years ago. The bulbs are self propogating and I now have a thick row of thin garlic stems very close together. Most of the bulbs are tiny. I use the stems like chives but with a garlicky taste rather than an oniony taste - quite good in stews. The larger stems yield large single clove bulbs about 1-1.5 cm diameter but never any bigger. The stems never go yellow, they remain green all year round. Should I thin them out - how thin - and does anyone else get this perennial self-progating effect?
