If you’ve ever wondered where store bought minced garlic comes from or exactly how cloves of garlic have been grown, then you’ll be pleased to know that growing your own garlic at home can be very easy (and then you’ll know all about where it’s come from!).
Garlic is such a delicious ingredient in so many recipes and autumn is the time to get bulbs into the ground.
After around 8 months, or when a few of the leaves start to die back, it’s time to harvest. Hang harvested plants (with the leaves still attached) in an airy sheltered spot for about a month to dry and cure, then it’s ready to use.
