Garlic 02 May, Lou (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Hi this is my second year growing garlic. This years crop the above ground green is going yellow. Is there something I maybe lacking in fertiliser or lime. Thanks in advance Cheers Lou
Garlic 12 May, David Warland (Australia - temperate climate)
Gday Lou, could be a few things, Nitrogen of course, but, it could well be magnesium, trace elements etc. Get a pH test done on you soil, garlic like most veggies like acidic soil, I aim for 6.5 in my garlic beds. Is your soil well draining ? Try some blood and bone and add some extra magnesuium Sulphate, (epsom salts).If your pH is too high, you must lower it, or risk poor or no crop.
Garlic 07 May, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Probably lacks nitrogen
