From the Forum: Garlic confusion?

The Kitchen Garden Forum is a fun, thriving community of people like you. Each week we highlight a thread for further discussion.

Forum user dan3008 asks:

I’ve over wintered my first “winter” garlic this year (October onwards), and the stem now seems to be splitting? 3 individual stems, which were held together by a papery leaf, which fell off over night…
I’ve never seen anything like it before… Its almost like the bulb is splitting rather than making cloves… Anyone else ever seen this before?
I’ll post a photo later… didnt take my camera out earlyer…
