Wow! After 2 months of record snow and cold our garlic beds look ruined. All the green shoots are yellow andl ifeless. The raised beds have been frozen for most of the past 10 weeks dating back to Dec 6th 2016.
On the north field we lost 90% of our fabric covers in the howling NW gales. If any plants survive we fear the bulbs will be small. Survivors will have exceptional flavour as cold weather generally creates strong garlic.
We will see.
