Good information, thanks! I always seem to miss the fall planting window too, so I'll try this system. Garlic is a staple at our house too.

Really?! I had no idea.
I planted elephant garlic in the spring of 07 and had a good harvest. Even last year one had popped up when I had cleared the garden bed and hadn't planted anything there in 08. Was I just lucky?

Hello all - in a previous post I'd inquired about growing garlic... here's where I'm at:
Garlic needs to be planted late fall so it has time to root, freeze and be ready for spring growing. I missed the fall planting and ground froze so I stuck the cloves of store bought garlic heads in some pots in basement. They sprouted green tops right away.
That was about a month ago and here's the update...
I needed the pots to plant my herbs so they've got good growth come spring. Pulled out all the growing garlic bulbs and they've got good roots. Seems the top part has slowed it's growing. I put each rooting clove in it's own 4" pot and come early spring will get them out by the asparagus patch.
Hopefully they survive the temporary transplant to individual pots. Maybe I can try another few this way planting each clove in it's own pot to start with.
Stay tuned... :)
