Home & Garden

  • Delight in gardening
    A couple a summers ago, James and Lynda Moore got a call from a local Do-it Best hardware store.
  • Putting unused spaces to work
    Many of us have one room in the house that doesn’t really have a job.
  • Garlic chives fit for gardens
    Is it a weed or a garden plant? Garlic chives are among those plants – paulownia tree, Jerusalem artichoke, mint and anise hyssop are others – that can parade under either guise.

Plant garlic now

Plant garlic cloves and shallot bulbs this month and next for harvest in July.

Garlic cloves should be planted with the tip about an inch below soil level and spaced four to six inches apart. Shallot bulbs, planted with the tip emerging from the soil, should be spaced six inches apart.

Both need enriched, free-draining soil and even moisture. Supermarket-bought bulbs will work, but if you want to control the type and variety, order from a seed supplier.
