Every year I take a few cloves from the garlic I have in the fridge and plant them in the little bit of earth next to my patio rose.
I normally do this in September, then leave them alone till June when they are normally showing signs of being ready to dig up.
I have never bought pre-prepared garlic from the Garden Centre because they want to sell you too much.
I think that last September I planted six cloves rather than my normal three or four and this is my harvest.
I suppose it depends on the sort of garlic you plant and I have never taken notes (perhaps I should) but some years I get cloves that are single but fat and other years I have had heads with several small cloves.
Have you planted garlic? Do you have any tips? Are there things I should do to get a better yield?
Any opinions/advice very welcome.
