I thought this might be useful if any of you grow your own garlic...... LINK

That is quite interesting, Hattie.

I don't have any garlic, but I'll be interested to see if anyone decides to have a go! ok

I do grow some garlic but I find it keeps quite well in a cool place. I harvested it in the fall and stored it in my garage, hanging it like onions. I am just using the last head and it is in good condition, still firm and not at all dried out.

Home is where the heart is.

I do grow it, but never enough to worry about storage,  usually use most of it up and e last few small ones are roasted with the last of the tomatoes and then frozen

My home grown Garlic hangs up in the Greenhouse, just on the last of it now. My ordinary Garlic stored better than the Elephant Garlic.
