Sunny position, protected from the wind. Loamy, sandy soil which is rich in nutrients. Must be well drained.

 

Garlic propagates vegetatively either via bulbs which form around the main bulb, the so called cloves or via offset bulbs which are also called bulbils, which form in summer on a garlic stalk.
To propagate garlic, you can plant it in autumn or spring in the soil.

How many years: Not to plant:

 

Garlic can be planted in autumn as its cloves are fully winter-hardy.

 

It is always possible to plant garlic in autumn or in spring as it is durable and thus winter-hardy.
When planted in autumn, an earlier harvest is possible and the yield is then higher.

 

Pests: Leek moth caterpillars
They eat up to 25 mm wide tracks in the garlic leaves which ultimately leads to the death of the plant.

 

It can be harvested as soon as the stalks (leaves) turn yellow.
Then stop all watering and harvest when the weather is dry and sunny.
Allow the bulb to dry in the bed for some days after harvesting. After the harvest, it is best to plait them together and store in a cool dark place.

 

Fresh garlic should be kept in a dark, dry, well aired and cool place.
Garlic can be kept for up to 6 months using the following method:

  • By preserving in oil. Boil the peeled cloves for about 5 minutes to kill any germs, cool off and dry and then put into a clean, screw-top glass with plenty of olive oil.
  • Directly heat garlic cloves in olive oil and put into a screw-top glass.
Tip:
Bubbles in garlic oil are always a sign that it has clearly been kept for too long.

 

Garlic is used in the kitchen to add flavour.
It goes well with ginger and pepper as a spice for fish.
