When flower heads develop, cut them off. This forces more nutrients into the root to develop larger garlic cloves. When foliage begins to turn yellow and dry out later in summer, stop watering. Press any foliage over towards the ground. Let the foliage completely dry out and then dig the garlic. Clean the dirt off completely and let them continue drying if necessary, in a shaded location. Enjoy that garlic!
