Okay, I know garlic is usually planted in the fall. CAN it be planted in the spring?

I've tried it in the past with poor results.

Me too - it didn't work so well, so I intend this fall to plant it properly.

You aren't far from me, Magnolia! Nice to have another Georgian here! :)

Thanks for the info.

Grey, I noticed you're from Georgia too. I've really enjoyed reading your posts and knowing that they are pertinent to my yard by virtue of vicinity!

Well and good!

I went ahead about a month and a half ago to plant the garlic that decided to sprout in my kitchen - I planted some in pots outside and some here inside... and they looked great for 3 weeks, then the growth stopped and they acted "dead." I tried it like this before as a Florida resident, after a while they had just rotted, those that didn't just never sprouted a second time. So this Fall I will be a good little gardener and plant them THEN. lol.
