Did you know Oregon is great for growing garlic? Right now is the time to plant if you have not already! Garlic is one of the easiest crops to grow, and who doesn't love it? Here are some tips to improve your garlic-growing, and be sure to check out this link for more information:
- Select a sunny spot
- Break apart cloves from the bulb a few days before planting, keeping the papery husk on each individual clove.
- Place cloves 2 to 4 inches apart and 2 inches deep, in their upright position (the wide root side facing down and pointed end facing up).
- Plant in rows spaced 10 to 14 inches apart (or plant one in a pot!)
