garlic sprout

i forgot to mention that some of the garlic bulbils have actually started to sprout.  I think it’s taken 3 weeks, and a few have sprouted.

bubils sprouting in bulb trays

i’ve been thinking that they might need a cold treatment – so i’ve thrown some in the fridge for a couple of weeks, and am gonna plant them and see if they sprout any better, but i still have three weeks before i plan to plant any garlic, so maybe a bunch with sprout up.  the other option is to wait until next spring to plant them, but this won’t really help my efforts to grow green garlic for next spring.

  1. I’m a little confused about the “sprouting” of the bulbs…I planted some garlic buds (four days ago) and assumed that I wouldn’t see anything until Spring!
    Did I misunderstand something? Thanks, Ginny

  2. not the bulbs the little bubils that form on the top of the scape.
