Garlic doesn't show it's bulbs like onions, I have got hard and soft neck I planted in Dec. Both are starting to yellow. The hard neck will have a very rigid stem, I have tried in the past to plait these and it's nigh on impossible. I usually harvest end of June, I'll pull one and check it then if it is ok I'll lift the others and leave out for a few hours then bring in, use a soft brush to get the dirt off and store in a cool cupboard.
The ones I planted at home in raised beds are a bit behind the ones I put in the allotment clay soiled beds so I'll be keen to see how they faired against each other.
