Oh dear, planted whole garlic bulbs
This is the first year I've grown garlic, and purchased four bulbs from our local nursery. The checkout girl gave me instructions which I glanced through before plunking my bulbs in the ground. The garlic is up, about 2.5 inches, and I've just reread those instructions and realized I was supposed to separate the cloves and plant them separately. What a silly, newbie mistake.
Can I save my garlic by digging it up and separating it now or is it too late?
