Garlic is a great vegetable to plant in your garden and a great addition to many dishes. Why buy this pantry-staple when you can get a plentiful harvest from your very own garden?

Similar to flower bulbs like tulips, garlic is best planted in the fall. You should aim for roughly four weeks before the ground freezes. This will allow the root growth to begin growth prior to the ground freezing.

What is the yield ratio for garlic?

The yield ratio — the ratio of how much you will harvest compared to how much you planted — is usually around 1:6. This means for every clove you plant, you should get 6 cloves in return.
