just noticed a possible problem/disease in my garlic. several plants have in the last couple of days have lost leaves they are turning yellow along their entire length with a green section down the rib. several have lost leaves entirely it is in an area about 6-8 ft feet along a row of Metechi but has spread to a few plants in the next rows of Lorx Italian and Ajo Rojo but just a cpl of lower leaves on them. 10-15 of the Metechi have gone all the way to the ground.

Are they planted in an amended bed with great drainage? How often do you give them supplemental water, other than rain? When did you plant them? Where are you located?

The only thing I can think of is too much water. I watered them them weekly for about a month after I planted then I let the rain do the rest. I do not regularly water.

no i've watered about once a week, which for here at this time of year is negligible as we should be getting showers twice a week, but with drought not happening.
