This crop is the Easy Button! It is no hassle, did great in our Ohio winter (previous winter I lost all garlic). I use SFG above ground beds, so there is more temperature fluctuations, but still did great! Very tasty, spicy garlic but yummo! Ordered it again for this year! No worries at all. Gets tall, I did not account for that. And harvest the scapes in spring for a delicate garlic flavor!
