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.
Hi all. I'm new here and see a lot of interesting parts to this site.
Years ago I gave up veggie gardening but am going to start again this year. I was reading your garlic posts, does garlic have to be started in the fall? I won't get anything if I start it in the spring, correct?
I'm SO excited about gardening again.
Agreed Michael. I'm going to order some this fall.
Kimberley - I think roasted garlic of any description has to be my favorite! I bought my Elephant Garlic at the Farmers Markets a couple of weeks back as it is organic. I ended up with 6 large cloves of garlic to plant.
I also always plant the normal garlic all around the edges of my vegie beds, again from garlic bought at the markets - I try to save cloves from my garlic for replanting but we seem to always end up eating it all.
