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.
