Re: growing garlic

I planted garlic corms last year and now I find clumps of the that look like spring onions.

Can I clarify something Ray?

At planting time did you break the garlic bulb up into seperate cloves prior to planting, or did you plant it whole?

Why I ask is; Each clove will produce a full garlic bulb so if you have planted the bulb whole each of the cloves will have produced a new garlic bulb giving the effect you describe.

I can't say I have ever seen what you describe hence my question!

This is how I grow my garlic; http://www.thegardenersalmanac.co.uk/Data/Garlic/Garlic.htm
