Growing Garlic in the Backyard is Easy

We have been growing garlic in our backyard for 3 years. We purchased bulbs once and will never need to purchase them again. We just hold back 5 or 6 bulbs each year for replanting.

This is "Music" garlic. It's a hard neck variety and a very popular seller for growing garlic in colder climates like mine. We plant right after the first frost in the fall, mulch the bed with about 8 inches of mulch and water occasionally. It will begin to sprout when the spring temperatures rise into the 40's.
