Once the garlic leaves start to yellow and the plump garlic bulbs start to push their way above the soil level, it’s time to harvest.
Proper handling of easy garlic after it’s been picked is almost as important as looking after it whilst it’s growing. It’s essential that garlic is dried properly, otherwise it will rot. The bulbs are often hung up in a cool, dry place. After a week or so, take them down and brush the dirt off gently – don’t wash the bulbs at this stage.
