I do not like marigolds but they are part of my garden when I have one.

I didn't know this. I was always told to plant garlic/onions/chives near where you sow carrots to keep away the carrot fly. The smell disguises the the delicious carrot smell. I know beans and peas hate the onion family but tomatoes, chards, strawberries and summer savoury love them I think.

I've put my elephant garlic - really a leek - into modules to get the cold as to date the place they are to go next year hasn't been cleared out. Fingers crossed this works.

It's good that they do well in pots because not a lot of other veggies like onions and garlic and won't tolerate them at all.

Yes, it can be planted in a container but It Must be outside for the winter.
Do You have really cold winters there?
If not, you may have to force them like you do flower bulbs in a refrigerator.

I must admit there's not much I don't grow here but garlic is one. I'm lazy enough to buy the Aussie bottled minced garlic. I only ever buy bulbs when I know I'm going to roast them

I have had a good garlic crop since '07.
- planted only 6 in the fall 2006 and I am able to pull garlic throughout the year each year.

Be careful where you plant and confine it if you don't want it to spread - because it will, very easy - - or at least mine did.

The garlic I've been growing has a sweeter, buttery - garlic flavor, and taste much better than any garlic I've bought commercially.

Is worth a go if you like garlic!

Planting Garlic

Growing garlic starts with knowing when to plant it. But planting itself is incredibly easy:

In mid-fall (around October 10 here in the Hudson Valley), plant garlic bulbs in loose, very fertile soil that's as weed-free as possible. Insert cloves root side down about 8 inches apart in all directions (if space is limited, you can squeeze by with 6), burying the tips about two inches down. Green shoots will come up; mulch around them with straw. Hard freeze will come and kill the shoots. Draw the mulch over the whole bed.

In spring, pull the mulch back when the new shoots emerge. Give them a shot of mixed fish emulsion and liquid seaweed. Keep them weeded. Water only if the soil is dry two or more inches down, being sure to avoid pouring water into the crowns of the plants.
