Now is the time to buy your garlic ready to plant it in November.Some years I tried to plant it later but that has never been as successful as when I planted it in November.
- Garlic likes to grow in a place that will be sunny spot in a well drained soil.
Yes I know, we cannot order the sun basically it prefers not to be in the shade and the sun will help to 'ripen' it. Do not plant it in an area which will be waterlogged in the winter months.
You can grow garlic in the ground or in containers including pots.
You will find that the planting instructions for planting depth and distance apart come with the garlic that you purchase.
If you have never grown garlic before you may not know that you carefully split the garlic bulb open remove the individual cloves and plant them separately. the cold weather will help them to divide and produce a bulbs with cloves of garlic inside them like the original garlic you started out with. You will find that different varieties have different flavours and that some are known to be better than other types if you wish to store them to use later.
That is it really except if you are looking for a place to buy you garlic bulbs to grow your own here is a link to a reputable supplier - buy garlic from Thompson & Morgan
