I have not tried garlic before but now I think I will.  I am in zone 6a, is it too late to sow seeds for this year?

Plant cloves not seeds. Best not to use grocery store garlic cloves. You need to find out whether you need hardneck or softneck garlic depending on your climate. Up here in Canada I grow hardneck garlic and my favourite variety is called Music. I am hoping to plant my cloves this week.

Contact your local Ag Commissioner's Office or Master Gardeners for the varieties that grow well in your specific area.

I am in northwest Ohio, and my planting date for garlic is Halloween, but it is pretty forgiving.  Order some and stick it in—it is so rewarding!

I checked some companies that sell hard neck garlic for planting and it looks like they are sold out. If there is a farmer's market, see if anyone is selling local garlic.

Here is a great guide from Old Farmer's Almanac and I learned a couple of things. I have to start prepping the beds and maybe build a small raised bed for my daughter who wants to learn how to grow garlic this year. Have taken a couple of years off but miss my home grown garlic. Always grew German Porcelain and now will be growing German White and German Red. The German Red is supposedly slightly spicer. Getting the seed garlic from The Garlic Farm, fairly local so no need to acclimate the garlic.         https://www.almanac.com/plant/garlic

I have a new bed waiting for the garlic cloves, California soft neck. This spring, the bottom of the older bed with the garlic fell out so the crop was small and not good for long storage. Ever optimistic!

Good article!

I do not have a “cool, dry space” for garlic, taters, winter squash...onions....I have a basement,  It is nowhere near 40*F.  

Who has this?  

Anyways, I have 2.5 squares ready for my garlic!  I had a bad year this year; and one thing I did glean from the article is to separate the bulbs a couple days ahead.  I don’t think the cloves that the paper husk tears do very well...will take better notes!  

Thanks!

Scorpio,

Like you, I don't have that cool, dry space for winter storage.  

Although my garage is insulated, it still gets below 40F altogether too frequently, and often below freezing.  Either I'll train myself to bring things indoors when such temps are likely, or purchase a small refrigerator for the garage.

Today is plant the garlic day for me; I have my tried and true German Hardy Red, and am trying a few variety Georgian Fire!  Supposed to be spicy, hope so!  I go 9/SF.  Supposed to be cold but sunny.  Will top off the beds, and plant the garlic after church.

Got my pre-order in for garlic today. The 4'x12' bed that is squash this summer will be dedicated to garlic over the winter and until next July when the squash will be ready to plant again. The bed will be half Music and half Russian Red.  I am only planting 4 per square this year. Last year's were 9 per square, and the bulbs seems restricted in development, so this year it will be 4 instead.

I'd been faithfully & carefully keeping back four big bulbs in ideal storage conditions for alate May early June planting of the cloves... filled aa complets 4 sq foot bed at 9 per sq ft .  They poked their heads up then everyone of them died before they got to an inch tall . Not sure if it was a sharp late may overnight frost that did it or that someone put a hex on me ....I'm still trying to puzzle it out .

three new big grocery counter bulbs have been purchased  , split up into cloves ..& got planted in early July with and inch of MM over their heads . The experiment was restarted in the same bed  , just to prove or deny it is something in the bed .
 
I'm a tad miffed about it all for those original garlics that died out were self produced from the same stock strain of annually harvested bulbs for the last seven or more years
