Garlic leaves turning yellow
I have 4 varieties of garlic (Nootka Rose, Chesnok Red, Metechi,Red Inchelium) planted late October in Central IL. I noticed many of the lower leaves are turning yellow on the ends. Is this normal as the plant grows and new leaves fill in? I've got almost $100 invested in garlic and I want to catch any problems before it becomes a real problem. I dug one plant up where I must have planted two cloves or a split clove and it's beginning to bulb and the stalks are nice, thick and strong. This is my second year planting garlic, the first year it was generic grocery store garlic. I've still got the straw mulch around the plants and the bed is almost entirely weed free (go me!) I'll try to post some pictures tonight when I get home.
