Green shoots showing - cut back or no?
IÃ¯Â¿Â½m in mid-upper NY State (Zone 5b) bordering MA. In 2011, I bought & planted, late in November, some Chinese garlic. It was ready to harvest before any of my other garlics this year.
This mid-October, I planted several garlic varieties using last yearÃ¯Â¿Â½s cloves, and now (late November), the Chinese is already showing 4 green leaves 6" above the ground while none of the other garlics show above the ground.
Before I mulch for the winter, IÃ¯Â¿Â½m wondering if I should cut the green back to ground level or just mulch heavily on those Chinese garlics?
