The Q&A Archives: Dealing with Garlic

Question: I need your help on my Society garlic plants. I want to dig them up but when I even get near those plants to cut or dig them up the smell is too strong. What I want to know is how can I dig up the Sociey garlic plants without such a strong smell? I don't know if it is even possible but was hoping for a miracle. Thank you for reading and helping me through this problem. Sheila Garden Grove,CA
