Separate garlic head now?
A friend just gave me a HUGE head of garlic from her garden to transplant. The cloves are really big, and the head itself is huge. I'm wondering if I should simply plant the whole, ginormous head or if I can separate the cloves and plant them individually. And...if I separate the cloves, will they be ready for harvest this fall or should I wait until next year?
I'm in northern Wyoming if it makes a difference. We still have freezing weather most every night, but my garlic that I planted last fall is starting to sprout.
