Planting Garlic. 3 October 2008 Planting Garlic

My garlic is hard neck snake garlic. (Allium sativum ophioscorodon Serpent Garlic, Rocambole, porcelain)

The porcelain variety produces a scape (seed tentacle). Porcelain garlic makes a plump bulb with only a few fat cloves (4 to 7). My plants usually produce 5 large cloves, and I have been using the largest bulbs for seed each succeeding year for five years. Porcelains are covered in a very thick outer skin, making them a good choice for storing.

The cloves are planted in October and harvested about 1 of July. Forty eight cloves were planted at six inch centers and the top of the clove placed about three inches below the top soil level.
