Garlic is one of the easiest vegies to grow, either in your garden or in pots/ troughs on your balcony. All you need is some good quality soil/compost mix, some sunshine and a bit of water!
~Break bulb into individual cloves and plant them 5cm deep, and 10-15cm apart.
~Garlic prefers a well drained nutrient rich soil, but avoid letting the pot dry out once the weather warms up.
~Traditionally planted mid June, on the shortest day of the year, and harvested around the summer solstice.
~Once harvested garlic needs to be dried well and then hung to store in a dry, dark place.
