I was told that you could plant garlic in the spring which is what I have done. It is growing great. Did I plant at the wrong time. Will I get a harvest by the end of summer?
I cant remember how far down i planted it. I was in a rush and did it in late october after a weekend up north. Ill be anxious until i see it popping out of the ground.DoubleDogFarm wrote:I'm not sure how to answer your question. I would say 6" is to deep. I plant my cloves so the top is about an 1" below the soil. Then I add a few inches of hay over the top. Straw would be better, less weed seed.Soo...how deep is too deep when planting garlic?
Well, I have now!Hey double dog farm. Completely unrelated. Have you ever heard the band minus the bear? They have a great song about the San Juan's!
I planted garlic last year mid Mar or mid Apr I can't remember. But I did get a harvest though they were pretty small. I did have fresh garlic that was tasty (also the garlic I planted last spring came from the grocery store). This year I finally did it right and planted mid Oct. We shall see how this crop does with the extra time. I truly believe that, though you can plant in spring, you will get a much larger crop if planted in the fall. This is yet to be proven in my garden. But I am sure it will.tedly wrote:I kinda figured it was something that should overwinter. I could still get a decent crop if I planted them now though? Hmmm...
