thanks lyn , do you actually fertilize during their growing season?and how will I know when to harvest?
Comment by Lyn - Sydney on April 3, 2011 at 5:23am
Yes Miko - you just get the whole bulb and split it into the individual segments/cloves and plant them with the pointy end just below the surface.

Miko - try Farmers Markets etc on the veg stalls - so much cheaper than buying from the nurseries.    If your garlic bulbs were old stock from the nursery they can also fail to grow properly.

I went to a Plant Fair today in Yass and bought some normal size garlic - 6 bulbs which will split up into about 50 or so cloves that I will plant this week. They will be ready to harvest in late November/Early December.

Yes Karen - the lady at the stall said that early April (our start of Autumn) is the ideal time to plant garlic as it loves the cooler weather to get started.

Karen I know what you mean about the intense smell. My daughter has been eating garlic by the bucket load since she was tiny and we used to have to close her bedroom door at night as the smell from the garlic would permeate the whole house. She used to get me to mince the garlic and mash it up in with the potatoes.

thanks Karen I think fall is our Autumn , when the leaves turn all colours, i will try to get elephant garlic! ring a nursery , thank you for that !

OMG, Miko, I have no idea why your garlic lumped into a ball.  We need a botanist in here to give you an answer to that question.  I planted my garlic in the fall and don't know what happens if you plant it in the spring...maybe it needs the winter to rest before taking off again when warm weather comes?
