I was fortunate to have a woman call me and ask if I wanted a bag full of garlic for the food pantry. When she brought it down what she had was a bag full of seed garlic and scapes…
Her mother told her to plant garlic in everything to keep bugs off. Boy can I tell she has a lot of garlic! I gleaned the scapes and cut off the green leaves leaving me 1 gallon of small “bulbs”.
My question is I’ve been telling people to take it and they could use it in cooking now if they wanted to. But it’s a little single bulb – baby garlic – from seeding itself I assume.
Can I plant this now despite it’s not spring or fall? I’ve been thinking I have nothing to lose and dove in. I just don’t know what it will be in the spring – rotted or otherwise not optimal. I buy my garlic in bulk from a friend who grows it (and yes, I could ask) but value opinions here about how this may fair.
