One year ago I planted garlic in my new home garden. I planted it too soon. I planted it in September From reading and looking at different types of garlic and long and short I am going to plant it before Thanksgiving. I will grow outside this year. I could start growing them inside and transfer to outside

I could do this by following three simple steps

#1. Cloves can be planted in the same container but must be spaced 1 to 2 inches apart.

#2. The root side of the clove – the narrow pointy part, must be placed down into the dirt first.

#3. Plant the cloves between four to six inches deep in a compost rich potting soil.

Garlic ( Allium sativum) is a medical herb used for centuries. Some of the uses of garlic are:

  • Treats and prevents gum disease

  • Helps treat common cold and flu symptoms, especially a persistent cough

  • Treats yeasts infections

  • Garlic oil helps remove splinters

  • Heals cold sore

  • Soothes yeast infection discomfort and helps correct the problem

    Until tomorrow…
