Looking to learn more about growing garlic?
If you’re new to the idea of overwintering garlic–planting garlic in the fall to give it a headstart on next spring’s growing season–or if you’re new to growing garlic in general, watch our Garlic Planting Video. Here we explain the basics of how to grow hardneck garlic for our Zone 4 conditions.
Depending on the variety, every bulb of garlic has 4-10 cloves. Each of those cloves can be planted and become a new bulb, and each year’s harvest can provide next year’s cloves for planting! It’s an infinite loop as long as you save some each harvest for replanting! With such never-ending potential, a few bulbs are a great investment!
