Question: 358-1616
I have raised beds and have a hard time growing garlic and was wondering if you have any tips? Welder, Westerly,RI

Mort's Answer:
Garlic can be planted in the spring or fall. Cloves need to be planted in light soil about four inches deep or two and a half times the size of the bulb in depth. You can add sand if your soil is clayey. They should be point up at least two inches above the point. Larger bulbs over an inch can be split into cloves to make more plants. Fall plantings should be covered with a mulch of straw for best results.
