Growing Garlic

Picking up fresh herbs from your garden and using them in your recipes is such a fulfilling feeling in morning.

Today I picked up garlic leaves and enjoyed its fresh aroma !

Growing garlic is pretty easy just pick up healthy garlic bulb from your kitchen basket. Remove the white/purplish covering from cloves. Prepare your container with potting soil mix and just plant them.



  • Container must be deep and spacious. As Garlic bulb will grow in size below soil.
  • Place cloves 4 inches apart and 2 inches deep, in their upright position (the wide root side facing down and pointed end facing up).


  • Cloves planted –  16th July .
  • Harvest the green leaves – 20th Aug .
  • Garlic Bulb – Yet to harvest.
  • Soil must be well-drained and good organic fertilizer.
  • Garlic needs to get covered with mulch to withstand low temperature in winters.

Share your notes or experience in growing garlic in your zone.

Happy gardening !
