Growing Garlic

Garlic - Brisbane - Sub-tropical. Due to circumstances I planted garlic very late April. 60 cloves and a brilliant strike. Now - I have a sparse scattering of remaining plants. The majority got to about 200 mm (6 inches) high then just turned yellow and died. The remaining ones (probably 10) are as healthy as, look like I will get some great cloves and are spread across the garden in no discernible pattern. Any suggestions of hints?

If you look at the planting calendar at the top of the page - plant May June July. There is an old saying plant on the shortest day of the year and harvest the longest day. Hours of daylight that is. Yellow plants may mean lacking N. You may have over or under watered them.
