I have planted garlic 4 weeks ago I water them everyday, Prior to planting I seperate cloves, I'm wondering when they'll be ready ? It is getting into warmer weather here around 17-23 degrees everyday. Also the green leaves have become soft and are no longer upright they're so soft and floppy.

I think Garlic takes a lot longer than 4 weeks to be ready (i think closer to 6 months)

As the garlic profile says above, planting time was autumn. Pay attention to the saying: "Plant on the shortest day and harvest on the longest".
