BCPS Garlic Challenge

No garlic shortages after Brexit for BCPS staff! The garlic challenge has been a bit of fun to get our new pathology identity known. There are now over 300 garlic cloves overwintering all over the Black Country in pathology staff gardens. You can see how the garlic is doing on the BCPS Pathology TV News channel here.
So many of you have had a successful garlic growing season. If you grew your garlic in a greenhouse then it may be ready to crop. If you planted outside then it will be ready before July. When the outer leaves start to die back properly then it is ready to pick.

Crop the garlic when the outer leaves die back. Leave to dry with leaves on.
