Time to plant garlic…actually a little pass time. I planted this garlic October 16th. I planted five bulbs. The garlic planted was grown by me and harvested 29 bulbs in July.
You want to plant the biggest bulbs, biggest cloves. I plant soft neck so there is no scape. Each of my hard neck garlic bulbs had 10 cloves so I planted 50 cloves 4-5 inches apart, 2 inches deep. I put the screen over it just to keep out cats, dogs, and people from tramping it down.
They should emerge in March…when I will be the happiest gal on the block!
