Mulch on top of garlic shoots?
I planted the seed garlic I held back from my harvest at the end of September. It came up rather quickly and has grown several inches. I usually mulch with straw. I'm wondering if it will be OK to mulch on top of the shoots that are already up or will that harm them? Should I try to place the mulch between the shoots? I guess I must have mulched earlier in the past years or else the seed sprouted later because I don't recall having greens up before putting the straw down. Suggestions please.
