    Yesterday had 72 mph winds
    My garlic plants (around 60 of them), are now bent over most are flat on the soil.
    Do I leave them to self recover, or should I lift and mound up soil to hold upright.
    Or stake them. ( not sure where I get 50 stakes)

    interesting that all onions around same height seem unaffected.

    Assuming you mean bent not broken, then leave them alone, they should straighten up.

      How deep are they, going by the photo it's difficult to see but maybe planted too shallow.
