Weed rows of garlic regularly and protect crops from birds by covering them with netting. Garlic is undemanding and will only require watering during particularly dry periods. Harvest garlic from June, when the leaves begin to turn yellow, by loosening them from the ground with a trowel. Gently wash and dry garlic bulbs, then place them in a warm dry position to dry out, prior to storing them. Bulbs can then be stored in good condition for up to 3 months.
Plant garlic in rows in any well drained soil in full sun. It is important that the soil does not become waterlogged so incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve drainage and feed the soil. On particularly heavy soils, grow garlic in raised beds. Carefully split the bulb into individual cloves. Plant each clove at a depth of 2cm (1") below the surface of the soil and 10cm (4") apart, leaving 45cm (18") between each row.

Great Harvest 2011-08-16

I bought this Garlic from from T M in September 2010, two bulbs that were full of very large and healthy cloves. I planted them in compost in 4 inch pots September and left them in my G/House over winter and planted them on the plot late January. I sowed 29 bulbs and in last week of June harvested 28 great sized bulbs, of which 3 needed using sooner than later (but still good) and the rest are now storing in my garage for over winter use. I have saved the best three bulbs for seed Garlic to plant this Autumn. T M are a bit more pricey than some outlets but the quality you get is 1st class and worth the extra.

Did well on the allotment, against the odds. 2011-07-14

Planted this Nov 2010 and in spite of poor soil, the terrible winter and the onion rot of Spring 2011, I got the best crop on my allotment site. Great stuff and have ordered more to grow again. Definitely worth buying decent sets if you want to grow garlic in this country.
