The following was received via email: We have planted garlic in our garden and it does grow nicely but at a certain point , the garlic becomes "infected" by something in the soil and it rots. The cloves are formed but they are rotten. We think there is some fungus in the soil. We have no problem with any of our other plantings. We now have cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers , sweet and hot, broccoli, eggplant and parsley , string beans and these have been in an over abundance and are healthy. We plant the garlic every year and this occurs every time. Can you offer a solution? Is there something that we can put in the soil that will help grow healthy garlic? Thank you for your help.
