Planting Instructions: 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 50º F.
