    Default Garlic

    I planted some garlic outside late last year. I also have some that has been growing in pots in the greenhouse. Been feeding it recently and the garlic outside is starting to look good - much thicker stems than the inside ones. Not sure the inside garlic is liking the heat recently. Was wondering if I should move the pots outside. Would it be happier do you think. I could also do with the space in the gh to be honest.

    Garlic is frost hardy.
    In fact, it needs a good hard frost to split the bulbs.
    Put them outside and they will be fine.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.

    Thanks. Have put them in the cold frame and had the lid open all day. It’s been a grotty day today. Will close the lid before bed just to not push them too quickly. Will garden them off and get them outside though.
