QUESTION: What do I do with an overlooked garlic bulb that is sprouting in the ground?comments (5) March 11th, 2011
Last year I grew garlic- great stuff, BUT I evidently missed harvesting one. This year we have warmed up all of a sudden, and I noticed this clump of foliage coming up. I thought it was green onions, but couldn't figure out why they were all together, so I tried to pull one up. It broke off, but the smell is distinctly garlic. I figure it must be a bulb that I missed, and the cloves are all growing. It's quite a large clump.
So- my question: should I just leave it alone and let it grow, and will it produce anything big enough to use; or should I dig it up and try to plant the cloves separately, even though they are already growing?
