Here is a pic of Early Purple, Germidour, Ziemiai from left to right in the outdoor bed. It was a very harsh trial - worst of winter conditions for garlic with early freezing in November, wet storms and freezing, extreme cold with little or no snow cover. And no mulch to be had this year. And spring so late, leaves were still opening on the trees on the summer solstice.

Early Purple and Germidour were the first of the rounds to be up, not long after the garlic from cloves in the other row, and scored 6/7 and 5/6 survival. Tips of Germidour were red when they came through the ground, but tenaciously they have managed to grow.
