My hardneck garlic is falling over

Posted: 17/07/2012 at 12:58

I was reading up on it a few weeks said too cut all of the leaves off, bin them not compost them, make sure that they are kept far away from any other allium family member. And use straight away, as the rust will mean they will not store well. 

I cut the leaves off at the start of the month they have been drying since so far (although i know only a couple of weeks!) they seem to be storing ok. However I am going to use them as soon as I can.

Mine is falling over also, I dug half up two weeks ago, it is all a very good size and drying nicely. The other half I left in the ground and dug it up two days ago ish, all mouldy......i can only guess the soil is just too wet. If mine is anything to go by, i would pull yours up. (I also planted last year)

To anyone in the know!

I would like a hand held sort of Matlock, something that is strong that I can break the ground up with? But cant find one and dont know what it would be called?

I saw Monty using one when he was planting in his veg garden, and it looked like it would fit the bill perfectly.

I go through a trowel every couple of months at the's getting a bit silly!

Any advise would be greatly appreciated x x
