I have garlic growing but it doesn't look like it is flourishing. Is

After making sure that it has been watered, and fed, give it an extra
dose of bone meal.

Phosphorus

Phosphorus stimulates growth, flowering, and root
development. Cell division is vital to plant growth, and it would
be impossible without the presence of phosphorus. Plants without

phosphorus grow slowly (if at all), look droopy, and have weak
root systems. But phosphorus, unlike nitrogen, is immobile. It
tends to stay for a long time wherever it is applied. It does not
leach and is not given off as a gas.

The best sources of phosphorus are rock phosphate and
bone meal. (Bone meal also contains nitrogen.) Superphosphate
is rock phosphate that has been treated with sulfuric acid to
make it more soluble. Unfortunately, in the treatment process
many of the valuable minor elements of phosphate rock, such
as boron, zinc, nickel, and iodine, have been lost. Phosphate
rock is often added to the compost pile in a light sprinkling
every several layers.

OK, thanks. There's more than enough water, won't stop raining! Will try
the bone meal.

This is a really good healthy diet. But I can't stand much longer eating garlic too much.

The best way to make it healthy is to water it properly on daily basis. Make sure that it receives sufficient water, not more not less. Average quantity of water. As another option make sure that is is receiving sufficient sun light. These are some general guidelines.
