My guess is that since the elephant 'garlic' is really a Leek it performs as does the show coach leeks which are notoriously slow to consolidate.

Telling a plant it is headed for the compost bin often gives it incentive to thrive ;-)

So Dave sent me some garlic cloves (left). Of course, once the Elephant garlic saw someone else doing so well, they decided to come up as well (right and back).

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
