Growing Garlic

Fall is when you want to plant your garlic. It is perfect to make use of the space in the garden over the winter months and will be harvested before the planting begins for the summer.

Growing garlic could not be easier.

Garlic needs an open, sunny position and well-drained soil. The bulbs also need a period of cold weather to grow. Which is why fall planting is best.

There are two types of garlic.

Soft neck garlic which usually has all-white bulbs is the easiest garlic to grow and is the type commonly found in supermarkets.
