It must have been the low temps/snow that caused the cloves to freeze....all who are
commenting so far are in zones 6-7 which had a lot of snow/below freezing temps.

Has anyone else growing garlic in other zones had similar issues this year or other experience with this.....I know John from EarthBox grew garlic...

Thanks,
Judi

Interesting!  I gave the extra cloves, from both kinds that I bought, to my husband and he planted them outside.  When we got home towards the end of April, they were about 6" tall.  I think I bought the cloves from Burpee and paid way too much.  I wish he had planted them all outside!

Thanks for the feedback.

I got a warning that it's been a long time, but garlic is a ling term thing.


I've had bad luck with garlic and other alliums in an earth box.  I suspect a root larvae or rot.
 Still trying. Planting Mediterranean garlic from Spain,Ita!y, France.

I've been successful with onions, both bulbs and transplants, and scallions in my EBs. Try planting just below the mix, too deep could be the reason for failure.
Why Google, when you have me?
