Plant gar­lic sets

Gardeners' World - - Fruit & Veg -

Gar­lic can be planted out­side in the au­tumn, but if you missed it or you have heavy wet soil, catch up now by start­ing cloves off in mod­ules. Sep­a­rate the bulbs into sin­gle cloves (bought from a gar­den cen­tre or mail or­der, not su­per­mar­ket). Put a bit of com­post into the bot­tom, then place the clove pointed end up into each cell and fill so that the cloves are well un­der the sur­face of the com­post. Wa­ter, then put them in a frame or cold green­house. The cloves will soon shoot and be ready to plant out as soon as the roots have filled the cells.

Leave the pa­pery skin on the gar­lic cloves when plant­ing
