The only advice I get online, friends or articles, is cut off the scapes. What are scapes? "The curly part!" ???
There is nothing curly about this plant. So, is it garlic? Allium? Edible? What's happening? What should I do? People who have not seen it assure me it is garlic and has curly scapes. Nooo, nothing curly.
When my 94-yr-old neighbor died, the family gave me the plants after they took their choice. I would like to make this a part of my edibles if it is edible. It is a beautiful plant with several flowers. So, it serves me well as it is.
Everyone mows it down, so it is a sporadic plant, hardy, returning after each mutilation?

I love the delicate lavender color. So, what's up with my garlic?
Another thing--I bought some Gilroy, CA garlic to plant. When should I plant garlic. I hear conflicting reports. I live in AL.
Do you have garlic that has no curl? Hellllppp!
