I planted garlic cloves on Oct 18, and now, 3 weeks later, I can see 5cm shoots above the ground. Is this normal? I had somehow thought the cloves were meant to lie dormant over the winter.

The weather has been warm by times and that is the reason. It happens anyway, but probably a bit quicker this autumn.
