Just harvested my elephant garlic (Allium ampeloprasum L. (Great-headed garlic group)) and thought I would pass along a little tip that I have used for the past year. Last year I learned that you can get the “corms” (the tough small little nutlike bulblets or bulbils that grow up around the main bulb) to grow if you soak them for 24hrs before planting, though the information stated that you would only get a 40-50% of them to grow and then only into “roundos” (a solid or noncloving bulb that will clove the next year). I decided to try it this spring and I got about 50% of my corms to grow. So, with the just harvested elephant garlic, I decided to replant the just harvested corms, without waiting for the corms to dry out and then replant in the coming spring, and see if I can get a better germination rate than I got with soaking and replanting of the dried out corms. Will I have a better % of growth this way, hope so, but won’t know for awhile. So has anyone else tried either of these techniques and what were your results?
