Great for cooking and very healthy! Garlic is a member of the allium family. It is an ancient bulbous vegetable. Itís easy to grow and requires very little space in the garden. Garlic grows from individual cloves broken off from a whole bulb. Each clove will multiply in the ground, forming a new bulb that consists of 5-10 cloves. Garlic tastes great roasted or used as a flavoring in many recipes.

Each plant produces one bulb composed of 5-10 cloves. When leaves turn brown lift the Garlic and hang to dry. Store in cool, dry conditions.

Planting instructions: It is best to plant garlic in the early spring in light, sandy soil that has been improved with compost or manure. This will permit full leaf development. Later spring planting is not successful. It has been found that long days and warm temperatures favor bulb development in the garlic plant. Gardeners who can grow onions can grow garlic since the culture is similar. Garlic does well with high amounts of fertilizer. The soil must be kept evenly moist as dry soil will cause irregularly shaped bulbs. Heavy clay soils will also create misshaped bulbs and make harvesting difficult. Add organic matter, such as well-rotted manure or compost to the soil on a yearly basis to keep it crumbly.

When to Plant Outdoors
Plant in the spring, after the ground warms to about 50ļ F.
