I didn't have much success with garlic this year - they rotted in the ground or disapeared altogether. So I'm just wondering whether I shall bother with them again - but if I do - now is the time to be planting them.
Elaine, it may be time as far as gardening books / magazines are concerned - but with this year's current wet and quite warm Autumn you may also experience rotting.
You would be better to delay until it gets a little drier (hopefully) and colder. They're not going to break into growth just yet anyway so the delay will cause no issue.
I was going to plant them in pots in the greenhouse till they get going - hopefully any wet weather won't affect them in there - what do you think?
What Garlic needs is cold - so in the greenhouse will be counter productive. Patience for a week or two - it can't stay wet forever can it?
