Garlic
« on: November 07, 2018, 19:53 »
In this months November Jobs it says you can now plant garlic.
I had a good garlic crop this year can I use one of the bulbs from this for planting?
I also thought about using a black sheet with holes cut in it for each clove would this be OK to do

Thanks in advance

Yep. Best way. Choose the biggest plumpest cloves from your stock. That way you will stand a chance of getting bigger bulbs next year.

Yes, now's a good time seeing as it's still relatively mild, provided it's an autumn planting overwintering variety. The idea is to get roots n shoots before the frosts really set in. Don't know about the plastic though pal, it's not something I've ever done.

Garlic grows well through holes in weed control fabric, less weeding for you and the soil will warm up earlier in Spring, which can mean larger bulbs ;)
