Garlic Planting

If you’re a home cook you likely start many dishes by throwing chopped garlic and onions into a pan with olive oil. It’s the foundation of many, many meals! Plan ahead and you can have your own year round supply of organic garlic with little effort.


Lots of people ask me about my favorite vegetable to grow in my garden. Although it’s difficult to narrow it down to just one, garlic is definitely up there! I plant between 220 bulbs every fall and harvest them in July.


My garlic stores in my basement for the whole year, so I never buy garlic from the grocery store and haven’t for many years.


If you live in a colder climate like mine in Wisconsin (zone 5a/b), you should plant your garlic during the last two weeks of October. I wait until I get a hard frost in my garden so I can clean out some garden beds to make room for garlic planting.


(If you live in a warmer climate, read this and this for tips about growing garlic in your region.)


To get you excited about growing garlic I’m sharing the reasons why I love it so much…and think you should, too!

6 REASONS YOU SHOULD PLANT GARLIC


It’s super low maintenance. Once you plant and mulch your garlic there’s very little to do until the harvest the following summer. Just keep it weeded (which is easy to do if you mulch it heavily) and watered if it gets dry.


It survives the winter. Where I live in WI we can get lows down to -40 degrees F in winter. (I know, I ask myself why I live here every January and February!) There aren’t a whole lot of vegetables that can take that brutal weather. But, garlic survives and thrives.


Garlic in garden ready to be planted

No pests and diseases. In my garden, garlic has always been pest and disease free. There are a few that exist, but they’re not very common in the home garden.


It doesn’t take up much space. You can plant garlic 6” apart on all sides. That means you can fit a lot of garlic in a garden bed. My 220 cloves take up about two garden beds. Not a bad payback for so little space!


garlic just harvested from garden

It stores for a long time. If you grow the right types you can store your garlic fresh in your basement or other cool area for up to a year. It’s so fun to use your own garlic in the kitchen all winter long! (See how I harvest and store my garlic here.)


It’s fun! Anything that’s easy to grow and requires little work from me is a fun vegetable to grow in my book. Garlic pokes up through the mulch soon after the ground thaws and adds a little greenery to the early season garden.


Some types produce a crazy looking scape in late spring from which you can make pesto, and hauling in a load of garlic in the mid-summer kicks of the harvest season with a bang.


.


Have I convinced you yet? If so, I walk you through the entire process of planting, growing, harvesting and curing your garlic (with full color photos!) in my eBook, The Essential Guide to Growing Garlic. It’s on sale for only $5 since we’re heading into garlic season! Read about it here.

Hi Lisa- Where do you live? Usually it’s planted in the fall and harvested the next summer after it gets a nice, cold winter. You could dig one up and see what it looks like. If it hasn’t formed a bulb yet I’d leave it out for the winter.

Hi Marianne – You can grow garlic in pots. They key will be to make sure you have enough fertility. Pots usually need to be amended every 2 weeks or so because the nutrients leach out due to all of the watering.

Hi Regina- Yes! Garlic is awesome because it survives the winter in WI. Just make sure to mulch it thickly with leaves, hay or straw to protect it from the freeze and thaw we get here.

Hi Catie- If you live in a cold climate like I do (Wisconsin) then you should not water your garlic after planting. It’s basically dormant until the spring, like a flower bulb. Mulch it thickly and it will survive the winter just fine. It gets down to -40 F here sometimes.

Great question, Bethany. In general most pests don’t bother alliums (garlic, onions, leeks) because they have such a strong smell and taste. The squirrels and chipmunks in my garden tend to leave them alone. If you’re worried, you could cover the bed with some wire after planting to make sure the critters don’t dig them up.

Hi Leslie! Depending on what zone you’re in you will want to read the links for southern gardeners in the post above. If you have trouble growing bulbs like tulips and daffodils you’ll likely need to pre-chill your garlic before planting.
