How long does it take to grow garlic?
When grown under the right conditions, garlic typically takes nine months to mature. Garlic grows best when it receives at least six hours of full sun daily and one inch of water per week.
Do you peel garlic before planting?
Yes, you must remove the outer skins of the main garlic bulb first. This is also called cracking garlic. This allows you to break apart the seeds/cloves. You will notice that each seed also has a natural protective paper it is best NOT to remove the paper on the seed.
So please leave in place the papery skin that covers each clove. If you do accidently remove the paper on the seed, the garlic will still grow just fine.
Choose the largest cloves from the bulb for planting and eat the smaller seeds.

What time of year is garlic harvested?
Garlic requires nine months to fully mature. It will generally be ready to harvest around mid-June to mid-Aug depending on your region.
What is the difference between soft and hard neck garlic?
The main difference is that Hardneck garlic makes flowers also called scapes. Softnecks do not make flowers. Scapes are also edible and as more people find out about them, the market demand rises.
Unfortunately scapes only grow for about two to three weeks of the year. They begin to appear about eight to ten weeks before the garlic reaches maturity. Scapes are best when fresh and consumed quickly. As they age, older than three weeks they lose their tenderness and become hard and woody.
When the flower forms it will make two or three curls as it reaches skyward. It has a mild garlic flavor and is used in egg dishes, home-fried potatoes or substituted for green beans. Some chefs even make scape ice cream so there are no limits to their usage.
