I harvested my garlic late and have no skins on them. Is there anything i can do to preserve it?

You can just leave them in the ground and they won't rot that way or you can also re-plant them right away for garlic the following season.

RE: Garlic harvested late

When you say they have no skins on them, do you mean that they have no coverings on the individual cloves or on the entire bulb?


RE: Garlic harvested late

That is the consequence of harvesting garlics TOO late ; the wraps(skin) will be busted out and the cloves will be separated. There is nothing wrong with them but they wont store for a long time. That is why gralics should be harvested whet it has about 4 to 6 green leaves. The wraps will be the continuation of those green leaves.
