Garlic Growing Tips and Advice
You can buy and plant garlic cloves from your local supermarket if you don’t want to buy cloves from a nursery. Garlic likes fertile soil and full sun, though it can survive in some shade.
Plant individual garlic cloves (not garlic heads) with the pointed end up after the first frosts. The garlic clove should be inserted about 2 inches deep and 1 foot apart. When the flower stalks appear, cut them off; otherwise you won’t get many garlic cloves. When the leaves begin to turn brown and yellow (about midsummer), you can uproot your garlic.
