I found this gorgeous picture here along with useful tips on gr owning garlic.
I was inspired to grow a crop of garlic this year by a few bloggers - including Thyme to Garden Now who is a northern hemisphere gardener, so when they reported on their crop surviving winter I thought maybe now's the time to get my garlic in. Today I've cleared the site, tilled the earth and added fresh compost. Then I planted more that 30 garlic bulbs!
I found these articles helpful in planning my garlic planning - Covertess, Kitchen gardeners (and this youtube) but mostly I appreciate the advice of some Australian organic gardeners like green harvest.
So, now I sit back and relax as my garlic will take up to 8 months to mature. Then I probably wont need to buy garlic ever again!
I have a few bulbs left that I couldn't find room to plant - anyone with a favourite garlic recipe for me to try??
