Garlic is not normally ready to harvest until July. When the foliage goes yellow and dries off.
Graham, you should have harvested your garlic last summer. If you leave the bulb in the ground over-winter each clove will grow in the spring, and you will get a clump of garlic. Not really much use in the kitchen as the cloves will be fiddly to peel.
Normal bulbs, like the ones in the supermarket are grown from one clove.
