2. Planting the garlic
From your chosen garlic head, choose the best clove to be planted by breaking the cloves individually. Be careful not to damage the base of the cloves because damaged cloves will not grow. The largest cloves are the best to use in growing garlic because larger cloves produce larger bulbs. In planting your garlic, push each clove to about 2 inches into the soil with its tips upward. Each clove should be spaced about 8-10 inches apart. After planting your cloves, cover it with mulch. Apply organic fertilizer right after you have planted your cloves and again in the spring or fall depending on what season you planted your gloves.
