Spring garlic should be planted as soon as the ground can be worked, so that the bulbs can set out roots early. Each bulb consists of several cloves. Break individual cloves apart from the bulb and plant with the flat root end down, 3 inches apart, 2 inches deep with 12-18 inches row spacing.
Garlic prefers full sun and soil pH of 6.0-6.5. It is a light feeder and requires a well prepared, well-drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate some compost. After planting, mulch between the rows, as the shallow roots of this crop do not compete well with weeds. Mulching will also help to conserve moisture. During mid-season growth, plants benefit from a nitrogen side dressing, like partially rotted manure, bloodmeal, or a drink of compost tea.
Harvest in late summer or when 75% of the leaves have turned brown. Lift bulbs during dry weather. Cure for 10-14 days in a warm, dark, dry area. After curing, clean roots and cut off the dead foliage. To make garlic braids, the bulbs must be dug and braided while the foliage is still green. Will store for 6-8 months in a dry, cool place.
Most vegetables, except for beans and peas.
