Tell me about Allium sativum ophloscorodon- Serpent Garlic
Hi! Through some research online I have discovered that the garlic Ive been growing in my garden is Allium sativum ophloscorodon, the Serpent Garlic. A few bulbs were given to me many years ago. I planted it in my veggie garden, but have since put some in various areas of my flower garden because it looks really neat (I love how it curls around). But im not sure im harvesting it right. I usually let the flower heads mature and produce those miniature cloves at the top. Then I plant the mini's and dig up the bulb. Is that how you do it? A neighbor keeps telling me I need to prune the stalks down Before it sets the cloves at the top. Any growing info would be much appreciated! Thanks!
