Learn to Grow it
You should break heads of garlic apart carefully into cloves for planting. Plant them in the fall after the first hard frost for a summer harvest and keep them well mulched over the winter.
Space your plants or seeds 4-8 inches apart in well fertilized soil. Plant your seeds 1-2 inches deep.
Make sure that your soil is well fertilized as this crop is a heavy feeder and takes a lot of nutrients from the soil. Consider adding compost to the soil the year before you plant.
Mulching the soil around this crop can help protect the plant and keep roots cool and moist. This crop may require regular applications of fertilizer and water.
