These are the garlic I planted way last fall. They grew a bit in the fall then they didn't really do much of anything over the winter but as soon as spring hit they went crazy. This is one healthy looking garlic patch. A couple of the squares are planted with garlic I bought from a seed company ($5 a bulb!!!!) the rest are from cheap (but healthy looking) garlic I bought at the store. I can't tell a bit of difference in how they are growing. I'll let you know at harvest time whether there is any difference at all. All the literature (probably written by the seed companies) said it was absolutely essential to buy garlic bulbs for planting from a seed company NOT from a grocery store.
