How to Grow Garlic

What you need:

  • Dibber
  • Garlic cloves

Don’t have a veggie patch? Don’t worry! Garlic also works well in large containers and windowsill boxes and is best sown from the end of September to November

1. Make holes using your dibber two – three inches deep and five – six inches apart 

garlic2. Drop your garlic cloves in the holes

3. Lightly cover with soil using your hand 

4. Keep your garlic plants weed free by laying a layer of lawn clippings over the plants 

5. Harvest your garlic in June and hang it up somewhere dry for about a month 

You can save cloves from the garlic you grow next year to replant for harvests the following year.
