Planting garlic in the fall
- Plant large, healthy cloves
- Plant two to three inches deep with six inches between cloves
- Plant root down
- Mulch well to protect during the winter
You can also watch this video from Kitchen Gardener’s International with the basics on how to grow your own garlic. An interesting statistic from the video: 73 percent of the garlic sold in America comes from China. If growing garlic is as easy as these sources say it is, it wouldn’t be difficult for us to make sure our garlic comes from a local source (our backyards or a container on our balcony) than from thousands of miles away.
