Maitake Garlic question?
Hi everyone, I have a question about my Matake garlic that I'm growing, The Maitake plants started sending up scapes about ten days ago and the scapes seem to have stopped only part way out of the leaves on the plants, you can't break them off because the stem is still hidden.
Most of my other hardnecks have since stated sending up scapes and I have been cutting them off when they get 6 to 8 inches tall.
Just wondering if anyone else has grown Maitake and had any problems with the scapes, As this is supposed to be a very early maturing garlic I would like to break off the scapes to help with the size of the bulbs, which are already enlargeing close to 2 inch bulbs already.
Thanks in advance for any input .
