Learn How to Plant Garlic

Christopher Wong of Young Urban Farmers youngurbanfarmers.com teaches us how to plant garlic.  Christopher stresses getting quality garlic seed to begin and discusses the merits of hard-neck vs. soft neck garlic.  Hard-neck garlic is more suitable for cold climates and has a richer flavour whereas soft-neck garlic grows better is warmer climates, matures faster and stores better.  When planting, make sure the garlic is planted 3-4 inches deep and approximately 6 inches apart from each other with the root pointing downwards.  Covering with mulch such as wood chips or straw is critical to keep weeds out and keep the soil moist.
