Garlic - what went wrong?

patinwi(zone 3 or 4)August 29, 2006

Our first attempt at growing garlic has yielded "paperless"

garlic. There is no paper covering around the bulb, and in some varieties not even any paper around the individual cloves !! How do we correct this and now what do we do to preserve what we have? Thanks, Pat

This is typical with certain varieties of garlic, Pat. Which types are you growing? (It is unlikely that the cause is due to cultural problems such as pests, disease, inadequate watering, poor soil, etc.)
