If planting in the garden, choose a spot with well-drained soil whether that is in the ground, a raised bed, or container. When planting, dig in some organic matter to supply a boost of the necessary nutrients.
Choose a garlic bulb that is large and cut the bulb into cloves like you would when cooking with a clean, sterilised knife. Then, wash each one. Plant each clove 15cm apart, with the flat end facing downwards and the pointed end facing up. Push the cloves about 5cm deep into the soil and cover over with soil.
Keep on top of care by watering to keep the soil moist and feeding with a balanced fertiliser.
