I have three rows of soft necked garlic in one of the raised beds and they are all about 10cm high now. I've kept the largest bulbs from last year's growth so hopefully they will be a decent size again this year. They probably kept us stocked up for about 6 months last year.
As well as the ones grown in the beds there are a few places where I've planted garlic around the forest garden and left them to grow as perennials. These have now formed clumps of varying size from just a few stems to 20-30. For the most part I've put these close to the base of the fruit trees. I haven't harvested any of the leaves, but think these could make a good substitute for spring onions at this time of year.
