4. Gar­lic

Garden Answers (UK) - - Gourmet Grower -

Su­per pun­gent gar­lic has a touch of magic to it. You pop a sin­gle clove in the ground and it turns into a whole bulb. Plant them in late au­tumn, early win­ter or early spring de­pend­ing on the cul­ti­var, giv­ing you plenty of chances to get them in. They do best in a well-drained and fer­tile soil but are sur­pris­ingly for­giv­ing, as long as you keep them weed free and wa­ter in pro­longed dry spells. Gen­tly break a bulb into individual cloves and plant them 3cm (1in) deep and 15cm (6in) apart. Dig them up in June or July as the leaves start to turn yel­low.
