Plant garlic now and by next summer you’ll be proudly pulling up a bulb
After salads, garlic is right up there for a crop everyone should try to grow. Pop a clove in the ground and wait; by next summer you’ll be proudly pulling up a bulb. It’s such deliciously good maths.
Of course there’s a world of difference between a tiny bulb with slivers for cloves and plump ones. Any garlic clove will grow over the winter, but what you want is something substantial.
