Tips for Planting & Growing Your Own Organic Garlic This Fall

How to Plant Garlic

Garlic can be planted in the spring as soon as the ground can be worked, but fall planting is recommended. Bulbs will grow bigger and more flavorful when you plant them in the fall. Β Plant 6 to 8 weeks before your first hard frost. Β In southern areas, February or March can be a better time to plant.

Garlic does NOT like growing in "wet feet". It can easily rot if it is left in soil that is too wet, for too long. To help remedy this issue, grow your garlic in raised beds or containers with plenty of sand and organic matter mixed into the soil.
