Just found out how to grow garlic

I just found out how to grow garlic via my brother who is staying in town for a while.

What you do is to "Crack it & peel it, Plant it 1 1/2 inches in the soil with pointy side up and then cover it with the rest of the soil"


That's very cool.

I planted garlic and shallots last fall. I'm anxious to see how they turn out.

Could you grow it inside in a container? I have been trying to do this as I can't get down to plant things. Just wondering.

You can grow anything inside as long as you have proper lighting, such as full spectrum.

I am trying to grow chives. Got some seeds, planted them some time ago, but the only thing I can show are a very small and thin things, ( they look like a head with only few very thin hairs). Well the only good thing is = they are still alive!

Garlic likes good rich soil, and here in Missouri, we plant in October and harvest in June or July.

I wouldn't peel the individual cloves--just break the head apart and plant. Keep the weeds down--garlic does not compete very well.
