Elephant garlic newbie
Someone gave me some bulbs last year and said it was society garlic. I planted it around my roses. Well.... it grew huge and I quickly found out it was elephant garlic.
Today the tops were browning so I decided to harvest it. It was a little harder to pull than I thought it would be and all the tops broke off at the bulb.
I was reading how to dry and preserve the bulbs and it says to leave the tops on. Now what do I do with it? I only have 5 bulbs so I don't need it to last for a very long time...
And I plan on using one bulb to plant... can I break it apart and plant it now... what do I do?
And those things that grow off the bulbs? What can I do with those? Some I left in the holes, some I have in a pile in the kitchen.
I am so new to this!
