How to Grow Garlic
Garlic is known for its many therapeutic properties, and it tastes fantastic! It’s a wonderful addition to many meals. Think roasted Garlic in melted brie, Garlic prawns and even homemade aioli! Growing Garlic is easy and rewarding. You’ll need patience though, as it can take up to 8 months to mature. The best time to plant Garlic in Australia is in early Autumn. This allows enough time for plump bulbs to develop before warm weather arrives. Purchase Garlic bulbs from your local nursery to ensure they’re virus and disease free. Supermarket Garlic may be treated with a sprouting inhibitor and as such won’t grow. There are two main types of Garlic: hard and soft neck. Hard neck varieties are better suited to cool to cold areas, while soft neck grows best in warm and temperate climates.
