Growing Garlic

Garlic is an essential ingredient in Italian cuisine. In temperate areas of Australia, it is planted in April and harvested in November. Australia produces a fraction of its garlic needs, so it is hard to find good Australian-grown garlic. The Italian Gardener recommends organically-produced garlic grown at "Good Aussie Garlic" near Bordertown SA and "Allsun Farm" near Gundaroo, NSW

It is always best to plant the biggest cloves from the biggest bulbs so purchase early because the biggest bulbs will be the first to go. Divide the bulbs into individual cloves and plant the bigger ones, pointy end up with the tip at ground level, into well drained fertile soil. Do not overfeed during winter, and make sure that they get enough water in the spring.
