After the storm I trimmed back some stuff that was really looking sad. One thing was a large society garlic that hadn't been trimmed in a while. Lots of old dead foliage from previous years. What I found was basically a ring of small plants with nothing in the center, it's been a couple of weeks now and the new leaves are coming up, but nothing in the center which is about 10 inches in diameter. Is there anything I should do for the center?

You made me go look at mine. I have three different types and all are o.k.

I suspect the center had been starved from light and nutrients but really not sure. Perhaps someone with an answer will respond.
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

Until I cut it back to the ground it looked ok and you couldn't tell it was actually bare in the center. But it is growing well so hopefully it will be ok. I put some fresh soil all around and inside.
