I planted 6 bulbs of Elephant Garlic and 5 have come up! I know it's early days, but I decided to try on the (winter) sunny side of the yard this year. Crossing my fingers and my toes!

So Elaine does that mean that the plant needs to be pulled up after the first season or can I leave them in the ground (as I did last year). I think I have probably lost them now. Why don't they sell the 'rounds' attached, you would think it would save them some time, give us more garlic and we could cut out one step out, saving time to our final harvest? Has anyone seen seed being sold for Elephant Garlic?
Right Andy - Elephant Garlic has a 3-step life cycle. The big bulbs you planted are the end product although other parts of the life-cycle are edible though you do eat your planting material that way. There's the 'rounds' a 1-bulb plant and the 'little yellow jobs' tiny hard-shelled things which when planted next season give you 'rounds'. Then the 'rounds' give you the big multi-bulb plants. One reason I suspect why Elephant Garlic is so much dearer is the fiddlyness of the growing cycle.
