Garlic didn't come up
For the past two years our garlic crop has been a disaster. We plant in late October, unpeeled cloves, 2-3 inches deep, then mulch over it with swamp hay. It's the same garden and manner we've always planted, with great success until the last two years. Haven't changed a thing. This year, less than 20% of over 200 cloves came up. Last year, even less. We dug up in the blank rows and found nothing. We planted eight varieties this year, from three different sources. Any ideas anyone?
