Identify my pink garlic

Allium sativum — garlic, for the layperson — is a species of perennial, monocotyledonous garden vegetable. It's powerfully aromatic and flavorful bulbs are often used in cooking. This information concerns pink garlic that is planted at the very beginning of spring.

Plant my pink garlic

Plant them 10 cm apart in rows separated by 20 cm. Plant outdoors-specific bulbs, which are stronger and more vigorous. If your soil doesn't drain well, form a 5 to 10 cm high mound, which will protect the garlic from excess moisture if it rains frequently. Bury each bulb by hand, a few centimeters underground, keeping the top pointing upwards. Water once, enough to darken the soil.

Water my pink garlic

Water moderately in case of mid-summer dryness. Don't be fooled if the leaves turn yellow in the summer — it's part of their normal vegetative cycle. Therefore, make sure you don't water excessively.

Take care of my pink garlic

Lightly hoe to weed the plot. Water very little or not at all. It's rarely necessary.

Harvesting my pink garlic

Once the leaves have turned completely yellow and the bulbs are well-formed, it's time to harvest your garlic! Harvesting is carried out by pulling up the stem at the base. Leave the heads in the sun for a number of days to let them dry. You may braid the stems together to store your garlic in an aesthetically pleasing manner.
