The trick is to let the plants begin to die back, but harvest before all the leaves have turned brown. The top-most, green leaves extend down, into the soil, around each garlic bulb. When the lower two thirds of leaves have dried up and turned brown, the garlic bulbs will be at their best.
So keep watering still.
Growing garlic always seemed to be something I was not capable of doing.I’m so happy I did not give up.when one is in doubt always ask for helpThank you for sharing your advice.helping me with the garlic.
On some plants now the top leader is starting to turn brown maybe three- four inches from the tip and maybe one lower one near the ground.can I continue to water the plants…….
