Types of Garlic

Softneck
  • Prefers mild winters but hardy to zone 5
  • Most varieties do not produce scapes
  • Mild flavor
  • Large bulbs of 12-20 cloves
Hardneck
  • Cold hardy
  • Produces scapes
  • Spicy, sweet flavor
  • Medium to large bulbs of 6-12 cloves
Elephant
  • Hardy to zone 5 with mulch
  • Produce scapes
  • Mild flavor
  • Baseball size bulbs of 4-6 cloves

When to Plant

  • Garlic should be planted in the fall about 1 month before the ground freezes.

Preparing the Soil

  • Fertile, well-drained, loamy soil with a neutral pH (6.5-7.0)
  • Full sun

Planting

  • Pull apart cloves from the bulb.  
  • (Optional) Soak cloves in a jar with one tablespoon baking soda and one tablespoon of liquid seaweed for several hours to prevent fungal infection and promote growth
  • Place cloves in furrow or hole with flat end down, pointed end up, 2 inches beneath the soil
  • Space cloves 6-8 inches apart
  • Cover with 6 inches of mulch such as straw or dried grass clippings. 

Fertilizing & Watering

Fertilizing
  • Foliar-feed garlic every two weeks as soon as leaf growth begins in spring (typically in March) and continue until around May 15

Watering
  • One inch of water per week in spring
  • Stop watering by June 1st or when leaves begin to turn yellow

Harvesting & Storage

Harvesting
  • Early to Mid-Summer
  • Carefully dig up when 1/3 of leaves turn pale yellow and withered
  • Lay whole plants out or hang in ventilated, dry, warm place protected from rain and direct sun. Leave for 4-6 weeks until dry. 
  • Brush soil of bulbs, without removing papery wrapper
  • Clip roots to ½ inch long
  • Clip stems after one additional week (hardneck varieties); trim and braid stems after one additional week (softneck varieties). 


Storage
  • Store in mesh bags or hang from rafters in a cool basement or garage
  • Store at 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit

Education can never be a substitute of general knowledge, general knowledge is something that you keep just for the sake of information and knowledge while education has become a necessity and compulsion that every person has to get it.

The moment you place food in your mouth, bacteria in the mouth turns sugars and carbohydrates from food into acids. These acids erode the enamel on teeth, starting the decay process. The more often you eat, the more you are exposing your teeth to the cycle of decay. To promote mouth and tooth health, pay attention to the types of foods you’re eating.
