Planting Garlic in the Fall: What You Need to Know
The great thing about growing garlic is, well, everything! It gets planted in the fall, after most of the harvest is done and garden chores are boiling down. This saves you time and stress in the Spring, when planting overtakes your everyday life.
How and When to dig up Garlic!- "Garlic starts to die and dry up from the bottom up. For every clove of garlic in the head, there’s a corresponding leaf. 6 leaves, 6 cloves. You get the picture. When half of the garlic leaves are dried up the garlic is ready to be pulled."
Looks like a manageable knot garden, but be aware this is a very low-water garden. If you give anything more than drought-tolerant levels of water, that Rosemary and Licorice plant are quickly going to grow out of control. You can see the whole project (and plant list) when you click down.
