Growing Garlic

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a few cloves of garlic that sprouted in the fridge and instead of tossing them, I thought maybe I could grow them. The problem is that the soil is pretty poor where I live and I really don't have space for a garden so I thought about planting them in a pot. Any thoughts on that?

I'd stick them in the ground today, about 2" deep.... garlic likes and needs cold and takes several years to acclimate to the type of soil it is grown in....
Soooo, you may as well get started...

So they don't grow like a typical garden plant, meaning I won't see anything useable for a while? Also, there is a good bit of snow on the ground so I may have to wait a few days ;)

They will grow and bulb... but, they will get larger as they get accustomed to the soil type you have... Save the biggest and best to replant this fall, October is the time to plant... Dig through the snow and stick them in the ground if it ain't frozen.... Throw some mulch over them... straw or leaves about 6" deep.... I usually harvest in July
