Any tips for looking after garlic in its final weeks? I know you shouldn't overwater in case the bulbs rot but presumably they also need water to swell? how often are garlic growers watering them?
also, when do people find you can typically harvest? Mine are still pretty green, although lower leaves are def yellowing and going brown. A few have flopped but I think my youngest son is to blame there...
the elephant garlic (leeks!) have just grown scapes which I snipped off. Does that mean they're not too far off..?
