Q. I planted elephant garlic corms in the fall and nothing has sprouted yet.
The corms are in a raised bed with mulch on top to suppress weed growth.
Steven, yes your garlic should be up by now. Have you tried digging down where they are planted to check the status of the corms? Chances are very good that you will find they have rotted. The combination of lots of moisture and mulch may have affected them this winter. How is the drainage from your raised beds? As with just about any bulb, they like to be kept in well-drained situations. Maybe next year you might want to try to mulch in the spring. ep
