[Total: 0   Average: 0/5]You must sign in to vote Dave shows you how simple it is to grow garlic in containers. I am going to be planting some garlic in containers and show you how I will be doing it. It is a great project but possibly plant them a bit wider apart if you have more space. Just get the cloves from a garlic bulb and plant them 2 inches down in some compost. Best time to plant them is around the first frost and let them overwinter before they start growing in spring.

    You DO plant? each clove individually!

  • HumanTestingRS 7 years ago

    Why do your containers have like pipes coming out of the corners?? Is it used for air circulation?

  • thegreangardener 7 years ago

    You will know when the garlic is ready for havest when the green stem falls over and turns brown. After you harvest your garlic you will want to let it dry for abought a week in a dark dry space. You should separate the? cloves each clove of garlic can grow a bulb there can be up to 25 cloves of garlic on one bulb. Hope this helps.

    But aren’t they sort of? clumped together rather than spread out for more room to grow?

  • PompanoBeachBabe 7 years ago

    Why can’t you separate the bulbs and get several plants from one? It would? seem that each clove would grow.

    I found that some garlic I had stored in the kitchen sprouted by itself, so? I’ve gone ahead and put them in a pot with some soil by the window. I didn’t realize it was supposed to be 10 inches deep though, I’ll definitely move them to a larger pot. The green sprouts are about 30 cm. now and they seem to be doing Ok, I am just hoping they will get enough sunlight during this season. How do I tell when they are ready for harvest?

    I used my leftover garlic that I knew I wasn’t gonna be able to use.? I did not let it dry but what I did was put it in a sandwich baggie with a wet (not dripping) paper towel to see if it will grow roots. I didn’t want to plant something that wasn’t gonna grow then I planted in the dirt, root down of course and it grew over 5 or 6 inches over a few days. You can do the baggie method to see if your dried garlic will grow but since its dry, it might take some time for it to start making roots.

  • baba112087 7 years ago

    How long does it take? I just planted my garlic about a week ago into soil after sitting in a baggie with a wet paper towel for a week to see if it will grow roots. This is just garlic that I bought at the grocery store and its standard size, no clue what kind but to me? garlic is garlic and we love it here. It has grown a lot!

  • grimsbyjack 7 years ago

  • aryabtsev1 7 years ago

    @PompanoBeachBabe you get a bulb for every clove you plant,? so it’s actually quite productive

  • PompanoBeachBabe 7 years ago

    Dave, can’t you separate the cloves and just plant them? Would? they grow? Do you only get 1 bulb from each bulb you plant? Then how do gardeners really reap a crop if they only get 1 for 1? Do you have something in the box to keep the soil off the bottom where the water goes? Did you build your grow box or did you buy it?

  • Myanmar9999 7 years ago
