Plant your garlic between October and February.
(in U.K other countries planting times may vary).
The garlic needs the cold weather to form the individual cloves.
Now is a good time before the ground becomes more difficult to work. ( frost and rain make it difficult sometimes).
Plant the garlic cloves in a patch of garden or vegetable plot in a sunny bit of the garden.
First clear the weeds before you plant your garlic.
You could try growing some garlic in a plant pot if you do not have a patch in the garden to plant it in.
Growing garlic is easy, so you can save money by growing your own garlic.
You can buy them from your local garden centres or on on line.
There are different varieties these either red or white skinned.
Some varieties of garlic store better than others.
If you cannot find bulbs to buy you can use the ones you buy in a supermarket but the varieties there might not be as suitable for growing in your climate as they will have been imported.
Select plump healthy garlic bulbs when buying them.
To Grow Garlic.
Plant garlic 10cm. apart with 23-30 cm between the rows if you are short of space or you can plant the cloves : 20cm apart with 20cm between rows
you may get bigger garlic to harvest because of the extra room they have to grow and with more space in between them you will find it easier to weed the rows.
To plant split the bulbs into individual cloves.
Gently break them apart with your fingers, now place one clove of garlic into each planting space with the tips of the garlic just below the surface.
Firm gently, into the soil with your hands.
Check them until they are established and keep the area weed free as they grow, do not over water. Harvest the garlic when ready in June, July or August.
