At MAP we plant garlic in the late fall to early winter. Garlic is an allium, which is a genus of plants. Onions, leeks, shallots, and chives are all in the allium family. Garlic is harvested in the summertime - usually in July (perfect for barbecues!)
What we find to be the easiest ways to plant garlic is:Garlic should be planted in rows about 1 foot apart. Garlic cloves should be planted 6 inches apart. The cloves all have to be facing the save way so the leaves won't grow into each other.
