How and When to Harvest Garlic

When is it time to harvest your garlic? Today I will share the clues you need to know, to know when the time is right!

Tips for Growing Garlic

For the largest garlic cloves, garlic seed should be planted in the fall.

My absolute favorite variety is Music Garlic. Great flavor and huge cloves!

You can plant garlic in early spring if you like. However, you will get much smaller garlic cloves as a result.

Harvest time is usually late June to early July. So that makes it around 8-9 months for it to grow and be ready for harvest.

Hardneck Garlic

The plant flowers as the plant develops. This gives you garlic scapes. It's like a second harvest from the same plant.

The garlic scapes can be harvested a few weeks up to a month before the garlic is ready for harvest.

Softneck Garlic

They keep longer in storage than hard neck. You can braid them, so that can look pretty cool in your kitchen!

When 3 or 4 of the lower most leaves on the plant, have begun to die off and go brown, that is your clue that it is time to harvest.
