I had a bulb I bought and the cloves istarted to shoot, I just decided to break them off and plant them, I put them only a few Center meters apart, I had forgotten I had planted them, and about a month ago thought it was grass, was going to pull them out, a neighbour said it looks like either garlic or onion, so left them there, not long after I remembered what I had done. Now I have sooo many leaves come up. Now I want to know when do I ‘pick’ them??? Exciting

I planted organic purple garlic in March this year and pulled them up at the end of September, They take around 8 months, but mine looked like the leaves were all dying,so out they came....and then all the rain and flooding came ,so it was the right time, They are well worth planting as they don't need much attention...just don't over water them as they may rot.
