Garlic grows best in full sun and a well drained soil. Plant cloves 1 1/2 inches deep and 3 inches apart in rows 18 inches apart. Planting is done from late March to early April. If no other fertilizer is used, apply 2 cups 5-10-10 per 25 feet of row. Apply the fertilizer in a 1 foot wide band and work it in. Keep the plants weeded and watered.

Garlic is harvested when the tops turn brown, about 90 days after planting. Allow healthy, harvested bulbs to dry in the sun. Store in a cool dry place.
